Introduction to the Finance Council

Welcome to the Finance Council page of St Paul’s United Methodist Church. As part of our commitment to transparent and responsible stewardship, the Finance Council plays a crucial role in managing the financial aspects of Saint Mary's Parish. Our dedicated team ensures that the funds are allocated appropriately, supporting the various community initiatives and essential church operations.

Our Mission and Responsibilities

At the Finance Council, our mission is to oversee the financial affairs of Saint Mary's Parish while promoting transparency, accountability, and long-term sustainability. We work closely with the clergy, staff, and community members to ensure that resources are utilized in a manner aligned with our church's vision and goals.

Financial Planning and Budgeting

One of our primary responsibilities is financial planning and budgeting. We collaborate with the various ministries and committees within the church to develop annual budgets that support the needs of the congregation and our community outreach programs. By carefully analyzing financial data and trends, we allocate resources to prioritize essential programs and projects.

Stewardship and Asset Management

The Finance Council believes in responsible stewardship of the resources entrusted to us. We ensure that the financial assets of the church are managed effectively and safeguarded for future generations. Through sound investment strategies and regular assessments, we strive to maximize the impact of our funds while minimizing risk.

Financial Reporting and Transparency

Transparency is integral to our operations. We provide regular financial reports to the church community, accurately documenting income, expenses, and asset performance. This helps ensure accountability and empower our members to make informed decisions about their contributions and involvement in the church's mission.

Compliance and Internal Controls

The Finance Council is deeply committed to upholding legal and ethical standards in all financial matters. We establish and maintain comprehensive internal controls to safeguard against fraud, misappropriation, and other financial risks. With our diligent oversight, we aim to maintain the trust and confidence of our congregation.

Get Involved

As a community-focused organization, we welcome the active participation of our members in financial discussions and decision-making. If you have expertise in finance, accounting, or related fields, we encourage you to consider becoming a part of the Finance Council. Together, we can ensure the long-term financial health of Saint Mary's Parish.
