Unless the results Are a lot better than they were last fall Many churches Are going to be in serious trouble. In most of the major denominations giving has levelled off or declined during the past year. With inflation driving up costs at a rate of 5 to 6 per cent a year even a leveling off Means a reduction in Church programs of ministry education and ser vice. Foreign missions have been particularly hard hit. Tile United presbyterian Church whose 3.3 million members probably have the highest average income of any religious body in the world had to slash its support of overseas work from $16 million in 1969 to $14.6 million in 1970. The Cut would have been even steeper had not the Church tapped its Reserve funds for $2.5 million. We can to keep that up a warned the Rev. Or. Theophus m.

Amp amp $ the same kind of Pinch is being Felt All the Way from the local congregation to the National level in Many other leading denominations including the United methodist Church episcopal Church american Baptist Church lutheran Church in America and presbyterian Church in the United states. Many factors seem to be involved in the decline in giving. Inflation has put a severe squeeze on millions of Middle income family budgets and giving to the Church is a painless place to economize. Some pledge cutters justify their giving strike As a protest against social activism by the Church although out of every Dollar Given to churches less than one half of one cent goes into social programs. Still another Factor is increasing Competition for the givers Dollar. Some people who used to give generously to churches Are now diverting a major portion of their annual giving to educational institutions welfare agencies or health programs. The most important Factor perhaps is a widespread Public impression that churches Are rolling in wealth and done to need any More Money which is pure nonsense. Possibly it s time for americans to ask themselves do we really want to dispense with the Church As a Community institution of not we Are going to have to Start supporting our churches a Little More adequately. $2.00 value when you buy bucket new England Intuit a 4 15 pieces Chicken 5 one pint Cravy 6 six dinner Rolls approx. 14 lbs.
