2017 Ministry Budget

Each year a process is completed regarding ministry budgets.  Each Committee is offered opportunities to make budget request changes.  The request are submitted to the Finance Chair and reviewed by the Finance Committee .  The finance committee prayerful considers the request in relation to the expected giving of the congregation.  Your pledge to support FUMC greatly assist us in this planning process.   Once the finance committee completes the task, the budget is past on to the Church Council for approval.

Our Ministry of Connecting – Inspiring the Hope
