Every year, our denomination assesses each church according to the number of its active members. The assessment supports the work of the Classis and of the Regional and General Synods.
For 2010, the assessment is $95.95 ($191.90 for husband and wife). Of this amount, the Classis receives $21.81. When multiplied by the number of our active members, the assessment of our church is a lot of money. It is not easy for us to cover these expenses from the operating budget. So we have asked in the beginning of the year whether our members would kindly help us cover these costs.
We are now approaching the middle of the year, and we are still far away from our goal. Of the needed $6,236.75, we have raised only $1,982.73. Please help us raise the remaining $4,254.02. It is, of course, entirely acceptable to donate only a portion of the assessment, if this is what you can give at this time.
