The following represents the budget that has been proposed for our Session, which will be voted on later this month. There may be changes before its final approval.
After a year full of surprises, we are prayerful that our 2022 Annual Budget represents a return to a full slate of programming, and we remain committed to serving as stewards of your generous contributions.
This year's balanced budget totals $3.9 million. Our income is comprised of contributions from individuals (46%) and from The Foundation at FPC Dallas (34%), which represents generous legacy gifts from our church family. Additionally, with the growing and revitalized downtown area emerging around us, part of our mission and budget strategy is to invite non-members to our campus by opening our parking facility during the week.
In 2019, church operating expenses totaled $4.3 million. In 2020 Session passed an expense budget of $4.1 million which was later revised downward to $3.7 million due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. This year's budget of $3.9 million represents a timely and wise investment in programming and campus operations as we prepare to welcome members back to campus as well as the changing neighborhood around us.
*Actual Block Grant request for 2022 will be $1,400,000. Church leadership will set aside $100,000 to the Special Fund to help pay interest expense on the loan to purchase 515 Park Avenue.
By giving to FPC Dallas, you are supporting the mission our our church as we help people see and follow Jesus and serve those who are most vulnerable in Dallas. Thank you for your generosity.

Thank you for committing to give in the upcoming year. Your gift will leave an immeasurable impact on our church and in the city of Dallas for years to come.
