We use Google Docs and map out the year. We are currently penciling in ideas for 2013. Sermon series, holidays, guest speakers, vacation times, all these help shape our plan.
There are weeks that we call ‘stand alones’ these are sermons that are not a part of a series. We often change the schedule in the middle of the year when things flow differently. However, we try to nail down as many things as possible early on.
Here is how 2012 has ended up.
Here are some raw stats about the financial giving at PSM this year. (as of 11/1/12)
There were 792 “giving units”. Most of these could be considered households, however, it is possible for there to be more than one giving unit per household if people want to keep their giving records separate (ex- each kid gives separate from parents).
514 gave less than $200 this year
142 gave between $200 – $1000
101 gave between $1000 – $5000
22 gave between $5000 – $10,000
13 gave over $10,000
