Church Forum

The Church Forum met May 22, 2022 at 1:00. After discussion and questions addressed, the vote for the Leadership Team Recommendation:

The Leadership Team recommends that the pastoral program be reduced to 22 – 24 hours per week (approx. half-time) and that compensation, benefits and expenses be capped at $45,000.00 maximum per year. This will be effective September 1, 2022.

This recommendation was approved by Forum.

Blessings on all,

Updates to Church Accounting Practices

Williamson Road Church of the Brethren

Leadership Team Recommendations to Congregational Forum

February 6, 2022

Leadership Team recommends that we hire Valley Accounting Services to perform the following tasks for Williamson Road Church of the Brethren as of April 29, 2022:

(1) Pay bills on a biweekly basis, using online bill pay.

(2) Prepare biweekly payroll checks, using direct deposit.

(3) Maintain the general ledger.

(4) Prepare a monthly financial statement.

(5) Prepare quarterly and year-end payroll tax returns.

Valley Accounting has agreed to perform these services for $300 per month.

The administrative assistant and the accountant have established a routine for sending payroll information and invoices to Valley Accounting on a weekly basis.

The treasurer of Williamson Road Church of the Brethren will review the financial statements. The current treasurer, Teresa G. Cooper, watches the cash balance to determine if there is enough money to meet the bills to be paid; she also monitors the transfer of funds as needed.

Leadership Team recommends that the Congregational Forum approve Teresa G. Cooper as treasurer for January to December 2022.

Leadership Team recommends that Teresa G. Cooper and Helen Bowman both be on the checking account as signers.

Leadership Team recommends that we allow Valley Accounting Services access to the online banking so they can perform the tasks outlined above.
