Giving to Friendship
The Finance Committee’s Role is to manage the finances of our church to help achieve our Mission of “being Disciples and making Disciples”. Each year the budget is established and then monitored monthly by the Finance Committee. An audit of the books is done annually. The committee is also responsible for establishing financial procedures to ensure that our Church’s money is managed and accounted for properly. Committee members are appointed by the nominating committee.
