The Finance Committee is responsible for the administration of the operating expenses of the church. Their activities, to name just a few, include the preparation of the annual budget, review of monthly reports from all organizations operating within the church, arranging for an annual audit of all organizations’ books, examination and approval of any expenditure not specifically budgeted for, and the regular review of the status of funds available versus expenditures pending. Contact: Bruce Shafer, chairperson, through the Church Office.
The Youth, Education, Outreach Endowment Trust was established to promote those particular ministries for St. John’s. Funds from bequests and gifts are invested; the earnings are used to fund numerous activities and ministries – support community charities for the homeless and less fortunate of God’s people, seminary programs, and flood and earthquake relief; education seminar expenses for church staff, council persons and committee members; youth activity financial assistance, Bear Creek campers’ fees, and national church youth gathering support, to mention a few. Gifts and bequests to the YEO Endowment Trust become a legacy that gives back; a stewardship ministry that keeps on giving, year after year. Contact the Church Office for more information.
