The Finance Committee meets monthly to monitor income and expenditures against the budget. Its review is taken to the Board of Trustees meeting by the Treasurer (who must be a member). It also reviews and recommends financial policy to the Board. Every spring, the Finance Committee develops an annual budget based on pledges collected during the Stewardship campaign. The budget is submitted to the Board for approval, and then presented at a Town Hall meeting for congregational input prior to the annual meeting at which the congregation must vote on the budget. The committee also initiates financial planning and handles all financial matters that may arise. Membership on the Finance Committee is open to anyone interested in the fiscal management of the church.
