The Finance Team has requested that the parsonage rent be placed in a designated fund. The following recommendation was presented from the Finance Team: The Church Treasurer will set up a designated account to deposit the rent money. This account should be tracked separately in the Treasurer’s reports. The funds should be used strictly for parsonage repairs and up-keep. This recommendation was approved by the Leadership Team.
