What does the Stewardship & Finance Cell do?
Our congregation’s generosity funds all of our Dexter UMC ministries, missions, special events and outreach activities, staff salaries, and care of our buildings and grounds. The Stewardship and Finance Cell oversees the management of these funds each month. We will post a monthly view of how we are progressing towards meeting our financial plan and note any special considerations that may be helpful towards that goal. If questions arise, please contact any of the Cell members and we will do our best to provide a timely answer.

Wow! July was a really great month for our congregation's generosity as the graph shows. Our cumulative income exceeded 2020 by $79,562 an 2019 by $18,254, which raises our hopes for adding some ministry money back into next year's budget. Our spending continues on target, which is a testimony to God's faithfulness and the growing energy of our congregation. Thanks to all for your faithfulness and generosity in giving back to God's work in Dexter. Imagine what could be possible for our witness to a hurting world if each of us continues to grow in our ministry go giving! Won't you pray about what God wants next for you and for our church?
