We as a church are learning how to live with generous hearts. Not only did our church grow in size, but we also grew in generosity in 2015. We exceeded our 2015 giving goal of $2.90M by 21%. As a result, we are able to invest more financial resources into our vision of being a community following Jesus, seeking renewal in our city by partnering financially with amazing local and global ministries. 

Although we ran 3% over our planned expenses in 2015, over half of that amount was due to our unexpected move to Congregation Sherith Israel for the summer while Everett Middle School underwent renovations. We also spent more than we anticipated it would cost for additional equipment and operational supplies needed to accommodate our church when we launched our evening gathering at Dolores Park Church.
