Celebrating your generous gifts to our general fund and beyond.

By Bart McNiel, Associate Pastor for Administration, Ministry Support and Congregational Care

As we approach the end of the first quarter of this fiscal budget year at Smoke Rise, there is much to celebrate as we look back on the budget year that ended in March 2024. 

In the previous fiscal year, giving to our general budget fund totaled $2,373,065.87 with expenses of $2,405,622.82.  We encourage our members to consider making their first and best gifts to our budgeted ministry plan each year, since the operations of our church depend on strong giving to our general fund.

We are also grateful for the many designated and special gifts above and beyond regular tithes and offerings that so many make to Smoke Rise. 

Below are some of the other ways Smoke Rise gave above regular giving to the general fund in the last fiscal year.

Annual Missions Offering – $58,780 (In support of the God’s Appalachian Partnership)

Families in Need (FIN) – $23,407 (Confidential financial aid and care for church members in difficult circumstances.)

Building & Grounds Care – $289,118

Sanctuary Lighting – $43,000

Other Designated Gifts – $109,964

“Every good and perfect gift is from above” (James 1:17). Thank you, Smoke Rise family of faith, for your faithful giving and service.
