Anyone know how cash payments ought to be made to people who perform services for our church?
As the Pastor, I authorized one of our elders to pay $300 cash to an electrician/friend to do repairs for our church building. He requested that we not ask for a receipt as he was off company time (which is his family's business).
His motive was to save us a good amount of money. We made a professional-looking receipt from the internet with a list of the repairs and by whom, it was then printed off and signed by our elder. And our elder was given a check for reimbursement.
Is there anything wrong with what we did, legally or ethically?
