Stan Ovens is retiring after 22+ years in the position. We greatly need someone to “learn the ropes” and take on this responsibility on July 1, 2013. This is an un-paid position and is open to a church member in good standing. In the hope that additional information will help inspire someone to step up and try this important position in the church, here's a listing of the duties of the treasurer:
1. Sign checks as needed (payroll and regular monthly bills will be handled online).
2. Review and sign all paperwork submitted by the bookkeeper.
3. Return signed paperwork submitted by the bookkeeper.
4. Present monthly reports to Trustees.
We have hired Jan Hafner as our bookkeeper. Her duties include:
1. Prepare payroll.
2. Accounts payable (including all required tax forms).
3. Monthly bank reconciliation.
4. Provide paperwork to Treasurer for signature.
5. Keep filing up-to-date.
Please prayerfully consider how you might be able to help the Church. Let a Trustee know if your heart has been touched to take on this position.
Do you love history? Do you enjoy preserving the bits and pieces of history so they aren't forgotten or lost? If so, then we have an opportunity for you! Richard Johnson is looking for someone to help out/take over the position. There are pictures, newspaper articles and albums that need to be cared for. If you are interested call the church office at 536-9821.
