Finance Committee

And you thought balancing your checkbook was hard!

The committee is comprised of:
  • a chairperson
  • elected treasurer of the United Parish
  • elected treasurer of the United Methodist Church
  • elected treasurer of the United Church of Christ
  • the United Parish's Financial Secretary
  • chairperson of the Stewardship Committee
  • several elected parishioners.

The Finance Committee is charged with assessing the financial needs of the Parish, and keeping parish members informed of financial needs, programs and resources. This team works with the Stewardship Committee to formulate plans to raise necessary funds to support our various programs through tithing and pledging; and works with the Endowment Committee and the Committee on Memorial and Special Gifts regarding memorials, wills and annuities.

The most important task of this team is to develop, through coordination with all church committees, a complete annual budget and submit same to the Council on Mission for approval. This process includes receiving recommendations regarding financial needs of program areas; evaluating financial requests from denominations to be included in annual budgets; consulting with all program committees which oversee paid staff persons to determine all salaries; and evaluating projected income from all sources.

Additionally, this team oversees the work of the United Parish's Treasurer, Financial Secretary and weekly collectors; ensures that proper accounting and record- keeping procedures are followed; administers funds as directed by the Council on Mission; and provides for an annual financial review by an outside agent.

Meets: 3rd Wednesday at 7PM
