Treasurer Reinhardt Struzyna reported
a net income of $6,218 for 2011. The budget for 2012 (recommended by Trustees and approved by Session) was received by the congregation. The 2012 budget anticipates a loss in rental income – tenants have notified us of plans to move – but remains balanced by trimming program budgets and keeping salaries at 2011 levels. The pastor’s compensation package was approved.
Trustee President Benjamin Brandt gave an update on building restoration. The tower, to date, has cost $178,000 more than anticipated because of accelerated deterioration of the tower between the initial bids and the beginning of work. The trustees are awaiting proposals for the final stage of tower stabilization. Although the repair has been costlier than expected, the trustees anticipate still being able to complete urgent pointing on the sanctuary building ($50,000) and roof replacement ($100,000) because of members’ generous support to the capital campaign -- $388,000 pledged to date.
The Session shared that they have begun a conversation about discerning God’s call for the future of Summit. (see Pastor’s Pen for more on this).
