Gymea Giving Beyond Our Church Ministries

The Annual Financial statement at the APM revealed the depth of our members giving to missions and projects beyond our church.  On top of the $40,770 given to our mission partners, an extra $18,000 was  given to needy groups, and ministries.  This is on top of the $45,000 our church spends annually on SRE teaching at Gymea Bay and Grays Point Public Schools.   This is a tremendous effort.

Gymea annual Growing in 2018

The APM revealed that after plateauing in 2016-17 weekly attendance grew by 3.6% in 2018 to 226 people.  This was despite the increasing difficulties many of our aging members are now finding getting to church regularly.
