Serving the Living Lord....Past, Present and Future

Why do we have a Finance Committee?

           
From the earliest days of our church's history, stewards recognized the profoundspiritual nature of giving within the life of the congregation.  The
ministry of Finance in our church balances the WHAT (funding raising) with the WHY(stewardship) of giving.
 
 The Finance Committee has approximately 20 members.  About  half are elected as at-large members of the Committee by the Church Conference and the remainder are ex officio with voice and vote.*  The committee oversees the financial program of the church including, but not limited to, assembling and recommending the annual budget, conducting the annual fund drive, arranging for any other fund drives of the church, and receiving reports from and providing direction to the Treasurer and Financial Secretary.
 
*Note:  With the exception of the Pastor, when paid employees serve on the committee, they serve without vote.
