    PPP2 Training for Local Churches

    The release of the Small Business Administration guidelines on Jan. 6 has been quickly followed by the release of funds to community lenders this week. Several of the major lenders also sent out registration links yesterday, a sign that they will also be open to receiving applications very soon.

    Presenters: Paul Eichelberger and the finance team

    The Small Business Administration (SBA) released the Paycheck Protection Plan (PPP) Forgiveness Application on May 15.  This application will be used by lenders to develop their online and in-person processes.  The lenders will soon be contacting churches who received PPP Funding to let you know exactly how you are to apply for PPP forgiveness.

    During the Training Tuesday webinar, BWC leaders will address guidelines and offer advice to assist churches in completing their applications.

    Local Church Financial Relief Webinar

    Local Churches in the Baltimore-Washington Conference have not worshipped together since March 8.  At the time this webinar is being held, churches will have been shuttered for three full weeks and it appears that this may continue for at least four more weeks.  We celebrate the innovations being developed by local churches to continue ministry into these days.  However, the reality of making payroll and paying the bills is putting stress on all local church stewardship teams.  The need for our Stewardship Teams to take action is urgent and essential.
