Where do my donations go?

Donations to the church are used to spread the gospel and make disciples of Jesus Christ. Your gifts to Sugar Creek allow the church to perform a wide variety of ministries for missions and outreach, care for the congregation, worship, music, youth, children, Sunday school, and study groups not to mention keep the doors open, the staff paid, and the lights on.

How does Sugar Creek uphold financial accountability?

Sugar Creek is committed to honoring God through wise and faithful stewardship to ensure the financial integrity of God’s church. We accomplish this through a system of internal controls, budgeting, and reporting processes.

  • An audit is performed annually.
  • The budget is distributed to each member of the congregation in January explaining in ordinary terms how the Church spends the funds it receives.
  • With one treasurer and multiple financial secretaries, no one person controls money coming in and money going out. 
  • Any member of the church may request a copy of the financial statements.
