Giving Financial Statements to Member
(Augusta, GA, USA)
I have been a member of my church for almost two years. Recently I was talking to a former member and was told that the pastor made a statement from the pulpit that "if anyone asked for a Financial Statement, they would be asked to leave."
Now, the last two churches that I attended always gave out the statements with the Contribution Statement. I'm not one to "rock the boat" - but feel that a statement like that just isn't right.
As members, we should be allowed to see just how and where our contributions are going and how the church is handling the finances.
Could someone please reply?
