Another month is in the books. Please see the table below for January and February results. As mentioned last month, receipts will vary widely from month to month. February is our first look at this trend. As for expenses, the slight increase in February is related to the benevolence payments made to local agencies that we did not make in January because the budget had yet to be approved at the congregational meeting. We ended February with a year-to-date $17,000 surplus!
The table below shows current year actuals, compared to the 2023 budget and the variance. I also included the 2022 actual results. This will give you a good understanding of where we are at this year compared to the budget and how we compare to last year’s results at this same time. Please feel free to email me with any questions you might have.
