I have been the church secretary for about a year not know the correct way of doing things to make things in the church run more smoothly. The hardest thing I am having problems with is doing the running balance. Every time we have a church meeting my pastor always asks me do I have a running balance for each month of what the church is bring in and paying out and I never have it together. Somebody said all I have to do is add up what is coming in, subtract what is being paid out and I should get the number of what should be deposited into the bank. When I did it, I was off from the correct figures. Can you please help me so I can get it in to him before the end of the year. •Maintaining an annual report of the congregations in a form that will summarize the information for availability at any given time. I did it last year for the first time and screwed it all up and it was embarrassing. Please Help.
I believe you are simply needing a Church Accounting spreadsheet to track the income and expenses for your church.

*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.
I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S.
