Webinar: Resourceful Servants will be held at ZOOM
Webinar: Resourceful Servants
Webinar for Congregation Treasurers, Finance and Stewardship Ministry Leaders
The ELCA’s Resourceful Servants initiative (resourcefulservants.org) promotes the financial wellness of ELCA congregations and rostered ministers by encouraging habits that strengthen and sustain individual and congregational financial wellness and growth. One tool of the initiative is a Congregational Financial Assessment. (For more information, please click this link to access the Resourceful Servants resource booklet.)
On Tuesday, October 26 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m., the Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod will host a one-hour webinar to introduce the assessment tool, draw attention to some financial and management “best practices” for congregations, and address questions by participants.
