FAQs for Stewardship at Deep River

Here are some frequently asked questions related to giving and stewardship at Deep River Friends Meeting.

Can I see a financial/treasurer's report?

Are my donations recorded for tax purposes?

Yes. Each Monday, the offering is counted and contributions are recorded in a program called "PowerChurch."
