Glen Morris United Church operating budget for the 2020 fiscal year is $108,000. To the end of February the 2020 year is 16.7% complete and expenses are at 19% while revenue is only at 13%. This results in a current yearly running deficit of $7,179. The Thebank balance has dropped from $22,585 to $15,406. Donations are urgently needed to correct this imbalance and ensure the ongoing financial sustainability of the church.
