The UMC Announces a Direct Billing Holiday During Pandemic

Click here to read or download a copy of the memo from Rev. Chris Lollis regarding the July, August, and September Direct Billing Holiday. This same information was sent to pastors and local church financial officers, if there was an email address on file. So that all church financial officers are informed, we are asking pastors to share this information with their finance chair, treasurer, financial secretary. We also ask the  church council chair and your PPRC chair. We will make this information available on the Greenwood District web page:
If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Pensions and Benefits and speak with Stephanie Ponds Henry, benefits coordinator for the Greenwood District.
