Why?

Our congregation, the German Church in Charlotte,  are financed differently. We do not receive church taxes like in Germany but we are financed solely through membership subscriptions and donations. So one is only considered a member if one contributes regularly. Members receive the newsletter. They can vote at the annual general meeting and can thereby actively determine and contribute to the life of the congregation.

 

How can I become a member?

How much should I pay?
There are no fixed membership subscriptions, but because of the drastically reduced contributions from the German Protestant Church we consider the following guidelines as appropriate: the monthly contribution should be about 2 10 % of the amount that a household has at its disposal after subtracting all taxes.

We do also want to emphasise that despite the changed financially circumstances of our congregations the following aspects remain very important:

 

Your subscription to the congregation does remain voluntary. Our suggestions are guidelines because of the different financial situation of our congregations.

New ideas and voluntary work for the congregation are as important as financial support of it. Everybody is needed, valued and can help in whatever way they feel it appropriate and possible.

You decide how and when you pay your subscription weekly, monthly or annually, by direct debit or with a cheque.
