Finances in Presbytery of Wisconsin

On this date in 1937, the Presbytery of Wisconsin, with congregations in Merrill, Cedar Grove and Gresham, Wisconsin, reported that the Presbytery's treasury was empty and unable to pay a bill of $2.28. The debt was paid through gifts at the meeting. At the next meeting of the Presbytery on February 17, 1938, a bill of $1.48 was outstanding. Again, gifts were received from those attending the meeting. At the next meeting on September 2, 1938, the treasurer was happy to announce that the presbytery had a positive balance of two cents in its banking account.
