General Operating
This fund is the on-going ministry budget of the congregation covering the day to day operations including staff salaries, program resources, worship, and our local benevolence to the St. Paul Area Synod. Annual reports are available in the Faith Office listing all the lines that are included in this budget. A budget is set by the Congregation Council each year and approved by the congregation at the Annual Meeting in January. The final budget is based on both ministry needs and anticipated income from giving.
Building Fund / Mortgage
This fund goes toward the mortgage for the building. Our facility allows us to bring Christ's Good News to people in the community. 
This fund covers our benevolence to ministries beyond Faith through the ELCA, global relationships of the St. Paul Area Synod, Lutheran Social Services, and other ministry partners.
