Rainbow Covenant FAQ:
The following is a frequently asked question regarding Conference, World, National, UMCOR, and Missionaries Advance Specials. Please contact the appropriate representative listed below for your District if you have questions.
Q: How does our church receive credit through Rainbow Covenant for gifts given directly to non-profit organizations and local projects that were not sent through the Conference?
A: The Monthly Remittance statement includes a section at the bottom which indicates how much has been given (or the value of items given) to local projects or other non-profit organizations. This report is provided to help with your recordkeeping and also these amounts are reflected in the statistical information that is printed in our Journal and sent to the General Board as part of our mission giving.
You actually receive Rainbow Covenant credit when you fill out your Rainbow Covenant Report at the end of the year and indicate monies that were given that have gone through the Conference and/or that have been given direct. The Rainbow Covenant Committee does not require you to have your gifts be reported either on the Church Statement or on the Voucher Credit Report.
However, if you would like us to record items on your Voucher Credit Report, please indicate on your remittance form the name and amount. Remittance forms have a "Voucher Credit Info" section on the left column of the form for you to put these items. Be careful not to add in these amounts when you add up the total dollars on your form to send into the Conference.
