COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 Updates:

The scope and speed of the pandemic continues to challenge us to be nimble and creative in our ministries. If you are looking for information and resources that can assist your church, we shall strive to keep timely materials posted here along with links to helpful resources in other places.

Among the key United Methodist information sources are the following: The Missouri Annual Conference Covid-19 resource page. Wespath, the UM pension and health benefits administrator, maintains a library of resources. Another great resource is the General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) of the UMC.

In addition, the Small Business Administration (SBA) is a key website for information about the new PPP loans for churches.

An outstanding source of information for all sorts of topics relating to stewardship is Horizons Stewardship. Their Giving 365 resource library is a treasure trove of timely and informative resources, including printed materials, videos and a free e-newsletter. Topics include e-giving, year-round stewardship, web-based communications, along with the full range of capital campaign consulting and stewardship services. Horizons is a ministry partner and preferred provider of services for the Foundation.
