“According to 2016 audits, the denomination’s 10 general church agencies that rely on church giving for operations had a total of $402.7 million in reserves.“

In an earlier post parson made a comment that leads me to believe that the Wesleyans aren’t directly connected with the UMC.
I’m not sure if the Wesleyans have check writing privileges on the $402 mil UMC account, so maybe parson can clear up the issue for us.
