We are quickly approaching the deadline for the 2016 apportionments. Members of the Council on Finance and Administration (CFA) as well as the Cabinet have been calling churches to encourage Connectional Giving and to get an idea of where churches expect to end the year in apportionment giving. Some congregations have taken up special offerings during this holiday season, some have made a commitment to give a certain percentage or amount, and others plan to finish at 100%. And there are other congregations who have expressed some financial hardship from circumstances such as the loss of members or significant building repairs; but still they have made plans to give as much as they can for 2016 and return to 100% giving in future years. We would like for all of our churches to know that we appreciate the ministry that you have done in the past year and also remind you that together we accomplish so much as a Connectional Church. We combine our prayers, presence, gifts and service to make a significant difference in the lives of God’s people!
