In looking over the church budget, I saw a line item for “clergy support”. I got excited thinking that Jimmy and Jon may get a bonus for going beyond the call of duty and getting in the dunking booth at the Fall Festival. Will McCurry needs to be added to that list as he volunteered as the cold winds started to blow! However, I looked in the “What If” booklet that our church published (out of the office supplies line item!) and found that clergy support helps fund the six district superintendents, pastor salaries for churches that can’t meet the minimum salary, pastoral counseling for the parsonage families, and various other worthy support items for clergy in the South Georgia Conference. Our financial gifts go beyond Vineville and help make the United Methodist Church function. Thank you for giving, but also be sure to let Jimmy, Jon and Will know you “support” them!
