Under the current pandemic situation, and with concern about having frequent meetings of the group of money counters, the financial secretaries are handling the money counting every other Monday. The mail is checked every day and checks are placed in our drop safe until the financial secretaries are in the office to handle it. That is the reason for the delay. For the foreseeable future, we are planning on continuing to do money counting this way, realizing it can add a delay to the timing for checks to clear. We hope you understand and can appreciate the need for caution during this time. Our suggestion is to give any check to the church some time (1 to 3 weeks) before it clears before getting too concerned. Please continue to feel free to contact the church with any concerns or questions.
