The early budgets of Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church were simple but fulfilled the needs of the church.  In the early 1900's the church had a paid choir.  Choir members received a salary of about $6.00 per month.

Budget of Christ Lutheran Church for 1918
Pastors Salary $1,200.00
Sexton $136.00
Choir, Including organist $458.32
Music $16.63
Synodical apportionment $300.00
Communion Wines & Wafers $10.00
Postage & Stationery for Financial Secretary $10.00
Coal Bill 1917 $109.30
Coal Bill 1918 $131.00
Telephone for Parsonage $30.00
Lights for Church $75.00
Printing, including Duplex Envelopes $30.00
Lights in front of church $26.33
Insurance $44.50
Repairs to furnace & new lights for church $179.00
Total $2,297.76
Over $200.00 of the choir fund and $76.00 for lights was raised by special collection.
We estimate March 1st, balance on sugscriptions outstanding $500.00, about $100.00
of which we do not expect to collect.
It will take about $400.00 to finish paying the above items.  This will leave a deficit on
our apportionment of about $200.00 and will also leave not in bank of $500.00.
In addition to the above we have paid to the Armerian-Syrian Fund $212.21
