Conversation about Stirling Challenge Funds
Facilitated by Jeremy Bergen
When we approved our 2017 church budget, we also approved two “Challenge Funds” of $10,000 each. This is how they work. First, we must meet our budget. But we want to challenge ourselves to go beyond that goal. The next $20,000 that we receive beyond the budget would be put towards two “Challenge Funds” – one is a “Church Fund” that will support initiatives or projects within our congregational life, and one is a “Community Fund” that will support initiatives or organizations in the wider community beyond Stirling. We will use a process of participatory budgeting to determine how we spend this money. Start thinking now of how these funds might be used to enhance our congregational life and to engage beyond the congregation.
