As Christians, we recognize everything we have comes from God, and we are simply sharing these gifts for His work. Through our tithes and offerings, we demonstrate in a tangible way our love for God and our neighbors. At Asbury, giving is also an expression of membership. The church does not specify how much an individual should give, but we hope each person will commit a percentage of their income and increase that amount as they are able.
Through your tithes and offerings, ministry and missions like worship, programs for children and students, adult Bible studies and small groups, pastoral care and support, mission trips, community support and services, and operational needs are met.
Asbury’s monthly reports are formal records of the financial activities and position of the church during a given month. Asbury’s Finance Committee and Financial Team work together to present this report for the benefit of the congregation.
The 2022 Operating Budget was presented to the Asbury UMC Church Council on January 18, 2022 by the Finance Committee and subsequently approved. If you have questions regarding the 2022 Operating Budget, please contact David Miller, Executive Director for more information.
Each year, Asbury contracts with an independent accounting firm to review the church’s financial structures. Asbury worked with Borland Benefield, a firm that works with other churches and nonprofits across the state to complete the 2020 Annual Financial Review. Asbury is currently working with Haley & Woods to conduct a full financial audit of Asbury’s 2021 financial year. This will be released in the coming months.
