We will be One church in 2 locations.
At 1st UMC Hillsville we are governed by a Church Council and this same Council will govern Out Of The Box Worship Center.
All tithes and offerings will be treated exactly as they are now. The budget for the one church in two locations will be established by the finance committee that serves both locations and then approved by the church council. All tithes and offerings will go to serve the ministry needs of that unified budget.
This is NOT a church split – just in case anyone should ask this question.
The Sr. Pastor and the Planting Pastor will work together, along with the committees established, and the church council to ensure that the two locations are working together. We are a Team, we will work to win people to Christ together,regardless of where people choose to attend a worship service.
We are ONE church in TWO locations.
