One of the most sensitive areas of church financial management is how member contributions are received, counted, deposited, and recorded. Members want to know that their contribution is used in the way designated. They deserve to know that it is kept safe and private and they need to have accurate records maintained and made available to them periodically.
Procedures & controls were established by the Financial Secretary; with added suggestions from the Conference; constantly being tweaked as specific findings occur; reviewed and approved by the Church Council. The procedures not only cover Sunday contributions but also all other fundraiser and special event contributions.
After the contributions are counted and deposited, a copy of the detailed written report is delivered to the Treasurer. The Treasurer verifies the report totals against the bank deposit slips and enters the data into the church computer system.
