Exploring the Draft 2019 Budget

A budget is a roadmap to guide the church in spending the precious financial gifts that members share to help our congregation realize its mission and ministry in Asheville and beyond. This budget is the result of planning and review involving our ministry councils, deacons, and Finance Committee members. In all, over 100 people pour over this document.

Take time and review the attached draft of the 2019 budget. There are two documents. First, there is a financial sheet that helps you know about each line item in the budget. Second, there are notes that guide you through each section of the budget and any changes from the 2018 budget levels. There is additional information on the budget in the September-October Highlights.

If you have questions, please contact Bill Arledge, Chair of the Finance Committee. You can email Bill at aledgebill@gmail.com or call Bill at 828-779-3349. You may also contact David Blackmon at dblackmon@fbca.net or call David at 828-712-8623.
