District Committees and Teams

 Would you like to get involved in the United Methodist Church beyond the local church level?

Servant opportunities for lay and clergy members in the Vermont District include:

Committee on Finance and Mission Share Relief

The District Finance Committee is composed of lay and clergy members who serve as a resource for local churches with regard to education about stewardship and financial matters. The committee also is available as a resource for concerns about Mission Shares and has been proactive in working with churches who have struggled to meet their obligations. [TOP]

This committee serves as a resource for local congregations that are considering such things as church improvement projects related to buildings/properties or the disposition or acquisition of property and facilities.  Contact Rev. Ralph Howe at ralphhowe@gmdlb.org or Tracie Wright at traciewright@gmdlb.org
