Stewardship & Finance Committee
The Stewardship and Finance Committee is responsible for the preparation of an annual proposed budget, and for a continuing stewardship education program within the church.
Annually the committee will solicit proposed budget requests from the standing committees for the support of the annual ministry. The committee will then develop and recommend to the Church Council a budget for the succeeding year, to be presented to and approved by the congregation at the November Congregational meeting. Subsequent increases in the budget must also be voted on by the congregation. Any transfers from one budget line item to another or any decrease in a budget line item will be subject to Church Council approval.
The committee is responsible for the development and implementation of programs for the enlistment of funds and for monitoring the subsequent flow of funds. Any special fund campaigns, such as building or debt retirement, will be organized and coordinated by the Stewardship and Finance Committee.
The Treasurer and Financial Secretary are members of the Stewardship and Finance Committee.
The Gifts and Memorials sub-committee consists of not fewer than three members, one of whom shall be the Financial Secretary. That sub-committee also oversees the Memorial Fund.
