Thank you - 2017 Apportionment Giving

2017 Apportionments are now closed, and we have a lot of 100% churches! “It is because of our wonderful churches continuing their support for the United Methodist Church, that the Northern Illinois Conference was able to pay 90% of our apportionments to the General Council on Financial and Administration.

We thank you, and we look forward to a blessed 2018,” said Lonnie Chafin, NIC Treasurer.
