We have a new policy for the gifts given to the church, both designated and undesignated. This is not a change in how we handle the funds, but it is written down so we have it documented for future use. In essence, if a gift or bequest is designated for a particular use, the session will use that gift money for that purpose as best as they are able. In rare circumstances, the session will re-designate gifts for a different purpose. An example of this is (hypothetically) if money was given to pay a preschool teacher, and then the preschool closed. That designated money would be put to use by the session in other ways to benefit children as the original gift intended. Copies of this policy and others adopted by the session over the years are available to view in the church office.
