UM Members (81482-LC-¶259.4)

Add new paragraph after following paragraph in ¶259.4:
  
       The positions of treasurer and financial secretary should not be combined and held by one person, and the persons holding these two positions should not be immediate family members.
       All persons dealing with financial management must be professing members of the local church.  

Rationale

Persons from other denominations, with no loyalty to the UMC’s Discipline (who do not attend the local UMC) are known to manage finances in UMC local churches.
