Handling Church Finances

Handling Church Finances

UMC is making a difference depictionThe Finance Office is a resource for the United Methodist Churches in Wisconsin. We hope that the information posted to this website will be helpful to your Church, especially the Church Treasurers and Finance Committees. If you have information to share or suggestions for additional content please email TreasurerOffice@WisconsinUMC.org.

The Conference’s own Council on Finance and Administration emphasizes Clarity/Transparency, Fairness/Justice and Accountability. We recommend this as a common theme for all of the Local Churches we serve in Wisconsin. In 2018 we held Church Finance Trainings in each District. Going forward, we will host at least two trainings per year. Please visit our Training page for upcoming dates.
