Information pulled from the Adventist church management platform, eAdventist shows:
Losses in 2020 were 619, which is not very different from 2019. A pause was made to thank God that the deaths weren’t higher, as was the case in some other unions.
Treasurer reports that year-to-date tithe is up 0.23%. This is very good considering the 12% tithe increase last year.
Watch for more details in a later newsletter.
