Do you have a staff person who is doing nothing for your church?

Sounds crazy, doesn't it?  It might be the case, though.  The people at the UMC Foundation would like for you to think of them as part of your church staff.  They are ready and willing to help the church with all kinds of financial issues.  They need to be asked and invited, though.  I recently attended the "Faith and Money Academy" they offered and was amazed to discover even more of what they are able to help with.  Take a look at their website, give them a call, and make use of this amazing resource:   http://okumf.org/
