The Administration and Budget Committee (A&B) is a committee of the Session and is composed of a chairperson, the church's treasurer, a Session representative and members from the congregation at large.

It counts offerings, publishes financial statements and reports, provides for an annual audit of the church's finances, and is responsible for the annual development and implementation of objectives for each committee of the church.

Presbyterian Investment and Loan Program

Faith Church is mortgaged through the Presbyterian Investment and Loan Program. Members of the congregation have the opportunity to invest this organization. Investments are similar to a Certificate of Deposit from a bank, and the financial benefits stay within Presbyterian Church USA to allow local churches to write mortgages at lower cost than through a bank, and investments by congregation members can help lower interest costs for Faith.

If you wish to invest in this program and support the church, please contact Mike Church for details. Click here to view investment types and interest rates.
