Welcome to the first in our new series of regional gatherings for church treasurers!

Please join us for a cup of coffee and conversation that will help define your role as church treasurer and answer all those questions you might have. Local church treasurers and assistant treasurers are all welcome. The program will run from 9:30 until noon, and is facilitated by Rev. Dr. Jonathan New, Associate Conference Minister for Stewardship and Finance.
There will be an additional (optional) session for new treasurers from noon until 1:30, which will address your questions (please bring a bagged lunch if you're staying).

TOPICS
  • Introducing the newly revised Church Treasurer's Handbook! Copies will be available for purchase at this gathering ($20/copy, $30/two copies).

  • Exploring the roles and responsibilities of a church treasurer
  • Understanding your church as a 501c3 corporation
