Paying the Utility bill
by: Marcus in Texas

As church treasurer at our small South Texas church, I would not pay the utility bills from the Building Fund without first obtaining permission from the Stewardship/Finance Committee and maybe even the Deacons. In fact, our Building Fund is one of the four separate bank accounts that we have, so those funds (meager as they are) are not even being co-mingled with regular operating funds in the bank. To pay the utility bill from the Building Fund would require gaining permission to transfer the funds from the Building Fund bank account to the general operating bank account, but only after gaining permission to do so.

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
