Growing Healthy Churches

Healthy Churches, Led by Healthy Leaders, Changing the World

Year-End Reminder:   Here is some helpful information for you to share with your church members as the year end approaches.

Since donations to your church, GHC and other non-profit organizations are still deductible on your tax returns, at least they are today, this is a good tool to learn how to do wisely. The IRS has provided useful information and there is even information about donating a car, which can be quite complicated.

Please read through the information from an email from the IRS:

The Internal Revenue Service reminds taxpayers looking to maximize their tax savings before the end of the year to consider charitable giving. Many taxpayers may already be planning to do so for #Giving Tuesday on November 28. Giving money or goods to a tax-exempt charity before December 31 can usually be deducted on that year’s federal income tax return.  Read more!

A sanctuary by definition is a place of refuge and safety. It’s supposed to be a place where people can let down their guard and find respite and reprieve from the normal activities of life. And yet, in light of the recent tragedy at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs in Texas, many are questioning the refuge and safety of our places of worship. On Sunday, November 6 as the horrific news spread like wild fire on cell phone news alerts, many people in my church came to talk to me or share with me their sadness. And every single person who messaged, called or talked to me had a similar question, “What if that happened here at our church? Are we prepared?”

Fortunately, about six months ago, we had some safety training from a very thoughtful evaluation and thorough training from a retired specialist who has worked for several police departments including the LAPD. However, in speaking with him on Sunday, we know we need to step up our preparedness to ensure that as people come onto our campus that we have done our due diligence to provide a safe environment…a sanctuary.
