Greetings in the name of Christ,
I am reaching out to each of you on behalf of the Houston Association. As each of you are aware the Association had an issue with the recordkeeping for approximately a year and a half. After going back and getting the records put back together, we presented to the Association, at the Fall Meeting, a reconciliation of the finances and a budget for the next year.
In going over the records, there are a number of churches that have been giving to the Association throughout the year. There is also some church that we would appreciate your contribution, as we have not received any of the funds normally given in support of the Association. As a reminder, we as an association have agreed to give $10.00 per member, in support of the Association.
If there are any questions about how much and when money has been received by the individual churches you may call, text or email me for the information. Just as a reminder, while this email is going out to various representatives of each church, only the official body or representative of the church will be given the financial information.
I look forward to the New Year and the various ministries and support that we are able to give to each other as an association. It is my prayer that each church, congregation and pastors have a blessed advent and an even brighter New Year as we look forward to Christ’s message in each new day.
