The primary responsibility of our count team ministry is to count and deposit the weekly financial offerings. Team members are screened and must ensure that the cash handling process complies with Diocesan Regulations (see Canon 15, Sec 4.6)) and St. Margaret in-the-Pines procedures. Each team counts and checks envelope offerings, loose cash and sundry receipts; records envelope donations in order that contributors receive an accurate receipt for income tax purposes; prepares the Counters’ Report and deposits proceeds in the bank. There are five count teams and each team consists of four members. One team is scheduled each week on a rotation basis and members must be available to fulfill their ministry immediately following the Sunday Service. If you would like more information about this ministry, please speak to Trevor Matthew.
