Budget Information
New budget schedules were available in the conference packets and at Nancy Mills' table. They were also sent individually the week after conference to ensure that each pastor and treasurer had a copy. If you or your treasurer still did not receive a copy, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

Many have asked if Real Time Budget will be an option for this district fiscal year. The decision was made by the General Board NOT to extend the option to this next fiscal year. All assessments will return to the traditional assessment method.
