The South Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church is offering local church leaders an opportunity to attend a seminar designed to help them prevent embezzlement, how to spot it, and what to do about it.

“Protecting Your Church From Embezzlement” is scheduled for 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. April 15 at Central United Methodist Church in Newberry. Register by April 10.

Conference Treasurer Beth Westbury and other lay and clergy leaders will present on numerous topics, including:

  • Scriptural and ethical basis for being faithful to God in the ways we handle God’s gifts and resources.
  • How to prevent fraud and embezzlement in your church.
  • What to do if you think your church is the victim of embezzlement.
  • Helping victims heal.

Attendees at a March 4 presentation of the seminar were glad they signed up:

“It was very helpful, allowing us to know that it’s OK to report, to question, to ask ‘why’ for verification.”


“The training was practical for churches of all size.”


“Tough subject that churches must prepare to address.”


“Information I need now.”

This seminar (0.5 CEU) is designed for pastors, finance chairs and others responsible for keeping safe the resources God has provided to our local churches. The $25 registration fee covers all materials and lunch.
