CRC's Financial Goals

As a congregation that is constantly growing and learning, we have developed a strategic plan to help guide us in our mission. With regard to finance, our goals are to:

  1. communicate financial information so that members truly understand CRC finances and needs,
  2. remain a fiscally responsible congregation, and
  3. enhance revenue streams.


In our effort to meet our goals and be transparent, we will publish annually a histori­cal perspective of our income and expenses as shown below. We do this because CRC is the religious home for us all and we all need to know how we are doing financially.
