Wow! That is a mouthful isn’t it? Yet, it is hard to believe that it is all coming upon us so quickly. Because of that, I need your help to ensure we finish our year off well for 2021. As well, I wanted to make sure I had the opportunity to communicate, first, how grateful we are for your part in the Lord’s work here at Suncoast, both in the giving of your time, energies, and financial generosity. The work of the ministry and the support of operations could not be done without a generous giving spirit among the people of this body. I realize and am constantly reminded of how much God has done in our midst together as a body, in our families, and in our individual lives.
Because your generosity has a direct footprint on this ministry, I not only invite but challenge you to give extravagantly this Christmas season. Without trepidation, I share the simple fact with you that this year has been a challenge financially for us. Stated directly, we are down 14% of our budget for this year, representing a little over $100K. This is significant. To add perspective, please know that this requires an impact on the operating budget and the decisions that must be made regarding ministries for the coming year, 2022.
Therefore, out of a heart of love and concern for our fellowship, I am asking a couple of things from you. First, join together with our leadership team and pray that God would open the heavens to meet all of our financial needs for ministries and operations, both now and in the coming year. Second, I challenge you to seek the Lord and to follow His leading in giving faithfully, generously, and joyfully. I am fully aware that every dollar given to the Lord at Suncoast represents a step of faith and sacrifice. Because of this, I assure you, to the very best of our ability, we will be good stewards of the Lord's resources. We have the understanding that He is faithful to generously supply your every need according to His riches. With Him, nothing goes unnoticed!

All for Jesus,
Paul Sheridon, Business Pastor
