Conference Budget

Our giving transforms Wisconsin and the World! The faithful giving of the local United Methodist Churches within Wisconsin empowers much needed ministry. Our mission is to Make Disciples for the Transformation of the World and we accomplish that through the giving of time, talents and treasures of the people of Wisconsin! Access information on our 2018 budget in summary, detail and narrative forms.

Local Church Finances

Our Finance and Administration Office is a resource for local United Methodist Churches in Wisconsin. The task of providing leadership in financial ministry is a great honor and an awesome responsibility. As a leader and steward, we want to provide you with a basic understanding of your role and the best practices. View resources on handling your church finances and view information on upcoming trainings, both in person and via webinar.

 

Apportionments

Apportionment is the term used to describe the amount that each United Methodist congregation is asked to contribute to the wider United Methodist Church in support of our missions and ministries around the world. In other words, it is A Portion Meant for Others. We sometimes call Apportionments the term Connectional Giving because it is an outward and visible sign of the connection within the UMC.

Online Giving

Churches

Churches can use the Ezra website to give towards apportionments, special Sunday offerings, and advance projects. Each pastor has the login for the website as it is the same website used for Statistical Reports. Contact Lisa Adler if you need your password reset.

Individuals

We encourage individuals to give through your local church offering plate by writing the project/fund number in the memo of your check or envelope. But we also accept donations online. Browse the online giving website for individuals!
