Year-to-Year Change 16%
A budget projecting a 16 per cent year-to-year increase may seem ambitious, but the Shepherd family invariably responds generously, both to defined needs and the broader challenge of extending Shepherd’s spiritual reach throughout our community and beyond. Last year, giving exceeded budget expectations by more than $20,000, again testimony to the congregation’s financial commitment.

The 2017-18 projections:
  • This year’s biggest increase ($42,000) involves debt service—moving that payment entirely within the operating budget, a move Session has long-sought.
  • The second major increase ($21,000) involves personnel.  Upgrading facility duties and janitorial work means creating a position that absorbs and expands both functions in a fashion that is more efficient and effective. 
  • Funds budgeted for mission increased $12,000, fulfilling a Session commitment to raise world-wide mission in accord with a formula adopted last year, as well as providing for growth in local mission giving.
  • Buildings and grounds contemplates added costs for mowing/grounds maintenance, Worship Center/Fellowship Center maintenance issues, increased supply needs, and maintenance demands caused by expanded usage of both the new Youth and Children’s Center and the Fellowship Center.
  • Utilities costs are up because natural gas rates have increased markedly.
  • Shepherd’s staff is receiving a cost-of-living salary increase.
  • The addition of budget allocations for hospitality and small groups is not an actual increase, but assignment of monies formerly budgeted for fellowship, which are now split between the two new budget categories.
