We encourage your church to give online (if possible) through the Ezra website and do so by the end of December. However, you have until Monday, January 14th to send in your giving. Any apportionments received after the January 14th deadline will be applied towards 2019. The Ezra website will accept 2019 payments beginning January 21st. As a reminder, giving reports are only mailed to churches that request them. Please email Lisa Adler to receive the reports by mail.
When sending checks to our office, please be sure to write in the memo whether your payment is for Apportionments or Benefits. We have some churches who have automatic payments set up through their bank’s bill pay and the memo does not indicate what the check is for.
If your church is interested in setting up recurring apportionment payments that can be automatically deducted from your church bank account each month, please email TreasurerOffice@WisconsinUMC.org. We will begin offering this automatic payment option to churches in 2019.
