Average Sunday Attendance at St. David's Church
in South Yarmouth, MA, is 110 worshippers,
including choir, clergy, ushers, children. That
compares to 150 in 2013,
The stewardship drive topped out at 208K in pledges.
The goal of 220K is planned to be reached by public
fundraisers, such as a silent auction and a summer
barbecue. Plate offerings in the past averaged 15K.
The thrift shop and rental of Nelson Hall could
bring in another 15K.
Thus an optimistic income of 250K would be 65K
short of a lean budget of 315K. And the diocesan
assessment of 25K must be paid in full. The
amount needed to compensate a full-time rector,
according to diocesan requirements, cannot be met
without substantial gifts, and/or significant
withdrawal from the funds invested in the diocesan
St, David's suffers from a continuing decline in
members, with no plan to attract new people.
