The Finance Committee provides oversight on all financial accounts matters of the congregation, including counting and depositing of all offerings, and developing the congregational budget.
Much like any household, the church needs to know its expected income and how much of that income to allocate to various expenditures.
The Finance Committee takes on the responsibility of allocating the church’s funds each calendar year. Based on information provided by members on their “Intended Giving Statements”, the committee projects what the total income will be for the year. Then, based on requests and budgeting by various other committees, the annual budget for the church is put together for approval by the congregation.
Serving as part of the Finance Committee, are the church Treasurer, the Financial Secretary and an elected council member.
