HCC's Annual Report 2016 - Online Version

  2. 2. FROM PASTOR STEVE... Dear HCC Family, An annual report is a snap shot of the health and well-being of the church from an economic stand point. The content of this annual report is important and informs us with respect to the tangible data it addresses. However, we know that the church is not data and numbers; the church is people in relationship with Jehovah the God of the Bible and universe. This means that much of what the church is cannot be measured, only sensed, and then much of that is so dynamic and mysterious that we can’t even put into words the work of God in the hearts and minds of people. Yet in spite of the majority of intangibles that cannot be quantified and measured regarding God’s church, this annual report gives us a glimpse as to where we are as a church family in economic terms. Please review it as if it was an investment prospectus of sorts.  I will do the same. Looking at it this way I will wonder about how I can manage better and you look at how you can contribute. It takes both of us and the presiding Holy Spirit to see the return that God desires. Don’t hesitate to question the data. If you have questions of principle or leadership, don’t flinch at contacting me for a conversation on the matter(s). If it is a question of data detail, please contact Goldie Morrow. Her information is on the back of this report and she will gladly entertain your inquiry. With that said I know God is using the strong economic times and the weak economic times to form us. He is for Heritage Community Church! I love you, may the peace of God rule your heart and mind, Pastor Steve
  3. 3. GIVING IN 2016 Our ministry programming is funded by the Tithe and General Offering. 2016 income was down by 1% from 2015.  HISPANIC MINISTRY The average Hispanic Sunday offering is $2,500. The yearly giving total is 7% of total tithes and offerings. GENERAL OFFERING 53% TITHES 47%
  4. 4. "...And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. As the Scriptures say, "Godly people give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will never be forgotten." For God is the one who gives seed to the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will give you many opportunities to do good, and he will produce a great harvest of generosity in you." 1 CORINTHIANS 9:8-10
  5. 5. EXPENSES IN 2016 Total expenses for 2016 were $1,811,338.44.  This exceeded our income.   This increase was a direct result of unanticipated major repairs that had to be fixed in the Ministry Center costing $54,000. This was paid using savings and surplus from the end of year giving. Our current debt paid out for the year to the Mortgage note was $275,514.52.     MORTGAGE PAYMENT 17% MINISTRY PROGRAM 83% Ministry program encompasses all expenses that allow us to perform ministry.   It is all the expenses that allow us to present a church that glorifies God.   All parts of the ministry work together to accomplish one goal: Ministry.   It is all about Ministry!
  6. 6. OUR MANDATE  || TO  INCREASINGLY BECOME THE SOCIAL CENTER OF GOD'S KINDNESS. We have several programs currently thriving at HCC.  $152,140 was given in 2016 towards ministry programs. Plus physical donations and hours of work were given to help those in need at home, nursing homes and so much more.  On Saturday, April 30th, 2016 we hosted an annual charity 5K race to raise awareness of human    trafficking in the U.S. All money raised went directly to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and No Persons Left Behind.  There was a total of $27,000 given to the Benevolence Fund that went to support 25 Heritage families during 2016. We helped with transportation repair, counseling, funeral expenses, house payments, recovery services, and BGE assistance.   
  7. 7. This partnership provides weekend food for 29 children at local elementary schools.    On average 345 people/families visited and sign-in to the Bread Pantry each month, taking home food to feed their families. We fed 14,615 people thanks to the Ministry of the Bread Pantry in 2016. THE EDGES OF OUR FIELDS -“WHEN YOU HARVEST THE CROPS OF YOUR LAND, DO NOT HARVEST THE GRAIN ALONG THE EDGES OF YOUR FIELDS; LEAVE IT FOR THE POOR AND THE FOREIGNERS LIVING AMONG YOU. I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.”  - LEVITICUS 23:22
  8. 8. January 2017 we began the Freedom Seed Campaign. This campaign will allow us to subdivide our unused land with the goal of paying off our mortgage debt.   From January through April we have raised a little over $50,000. Our total goal is $250,000 by the year end.   With 33% of the year gone, we are currently 20% raised.   Our current income is 8% below our need to meet our income budget of $1,852,800 with additional repairs on the horizon. Thank you for your continued generosity! 1ST QUARTER 2017
