District Apportionments Letter from Mission Council
posted on April 24
Dear Gateway Regional Churches,
Last week you received an email from the Annual Conference recognizing that due to COVID-19 some churches may need apportionment relief in 2020. The Missouri Conference Finance and Administrative Council (CFA) adopted a resolution that sets 75% of each church’s total apportioned amount as meeting the Conference requirement for receiving a “Paid in Full Certificate.”
The Mission Council of the Gateway Regional District has determined that if any church in the district should need district apportionment relief, we are more than glad to extend the same resolution adopted by the Annual Conference to you. Please contact District Superintendent Linda Harris to be in conversation with her regarding this.
The district budget is frugal and reflects the districts actual operating costs. Our apportionment request is the amount needed to cover those expenses. In 2019 over 98% of district apportionments was received, and as of the end of March 40.5 percentage of our churches have already paid 100% for 2020. The Mission Council is grateful for your faithfulness in supporting the work of The Gateway Regional District through your giving, and we encourage you to do so to the best of your ability.
During this time of physical distancing you, the churches in our district have done an outstanding job rising in new and creative ways to worship, engage Bible study, meet in small groups, pray, care for others and meet the needs of people in your communities. Most importantly you to continue to spread the hope and good news of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your faithful service.
The Mission Council
Gateway Regional District
