2017 Estimate of Giving

This fall we are spending 3 weeks talking about generosity.  We are talking about generosity as a lifestyle, generosity in our relationships, and generosity with our finances.  In 1 Timothy the apostle Paul reminds the church at Ephesus that they are “to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.”  (1 Timothy 6:18-19)

Our generosity should be based on the generosity that God has shown to us.  God went out of his way, in a costly manner, to let us know how much we are loved.  And thus, it is important to always keep God’s generosity in front of us, as we reflect on our own generosity.

In this brochure you will find the operating budget of La Jolla Presbyterian Church.  As the Elders create our operating budget for each year, we base it on the financial giving of our previous year, as well as the estimate of giving cards that we receive.  The leaders of LJPC want to be good stewards of the resources you entrust to us and this year we were able to reduce our operating budget by about $38,000.

We want to invite you to think about how you will financially support the mission and ministry of LJPC.  We encourage you/your family to spend some time this week thinking about the ways that LJPC has helped to shape your spiritual life.

God has blessed the outreach of LJPC since our church was founded in 1905.  We are grateful for the numerous opportunities God continues to place in front of us to reach our community and world with the hopeful news of Jesus Christ.  As we continue to live out our story, we pray and hope that you will join us as we serve our Lord in 2017.

Estimate of Giving Card

On this card you will find different ways you may support the mission and ministry of La Jolla Presbyterian Church. Our goal is that each attendee or family will fill out one of these cards. It is not just a card about financial commitment. There is also an opportunity to pray for our church and our outreach.

One of the things we are hopeful you will do this week is to spend time reflecting on your own patterns of stewardship and how God is calling you to give this year.

Additional cards are also available online at www.ljpres.org, or in the church office.

Our Operating Budget
Our operating budget for fiscal year 2016-2017 is $2,598,000. The pie chart in the brochure tells how those dollars are allocated.

God bless, and thank you again for your faithfulness.

2 Corinthians 9:9-11 The Message
“This most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you. He gives you something you can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way, producing with us great praise to God.”
