IMPORTANT Update on CARES Paycheck Protection Program
We have received information that you are NOT required to have a charge conference to apply for this loan.  Please do make sure that your Finance Committee and Church Council know that you are applying.
We have also learned that the application process will open on April 3.  Please work with your bank to get your application in on that date or as close to it as possible as there is a limited pool of money available for these loans. View the Paycheck Protection Program overview
Here is denominational group ruling for the UMC for you in case you need to submit it with your application, or you can get a personalized letter for your church at this link.
