Upholding Jakarta In Prayer
We are praying for the victims, their families and all affected by the terrorist attacks in Jakarta on Thursday, 14 January 2016. May the Lord's love and peace comfort and strengthen them.
I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. (Psalm 34:4)
Protecting Our Members’ Giving At Services
Every Sunday, unsung heroes work behind the scenes to ensure the security and accountability of the tithes and offerings we receive.
Security personnel, including armed security officers, are deployed across all service venues. Our service venues are also monitored with surveillance cameras.
Processes have been put in place for clear accountability. The collection boxes are designed to be sturdy, heavy and immovable. The boxes are secured by lock and key and can only be opened by a select group comprising at least one full-time staff, one security server and a professional armed security personnel.
The counting and recording of all cash, cheques and gifts are done centrally in a counting room monitored by surveillance cameras. Access to this room and its surrounding area is stringently controlled by our security team, restricted only to a select group of volunteers, leaders and staff.
Our auditors make routine visits to our Sunday services to observe this aspect of the operations, part of an annual statutory audit. When present, they will also witness the cash counting and recording process in the counting room.
For added security, every person in the counting room, including the auditors, are required to wear a specially designed pocketless apron.
Movements of money between all our venues and the delivery of the total collection to the bank is handled by armed cash-in-transit specialists from AETOS and Certis Cisco.
Clad in pocketless aprons, the team sorts
and counts the givings in a monitored room.
| || |
Sealed money bags are securely
transferred to armed cash-in-transit
We recognise and appreciate that all giving by our members and visitors are voluntary and an act of worship from them to God. It is precious to God and it is important that we have tight security and accountability over the giving.
Other principles of accountability
The giving we receive is used for the work of God’s kingdom, in line with our church’s vision and mission. If a member designates who or what a giving should go to, we will endeavour to accomplish that accordingly.
We apply good governance principles in our operations and are continually vigilant over our financial processes and accountability to our members and the governing authorities.
There is a strict no-refund policy in place that will deter attempts at money laundering or financial shenanigans through contributions to the church. Should we discover or even just suspect any attempt to launder money or finance crime and terrorism through the giving to our church, or links between criminal activities and givers or recipients of our church’s community outreach work, we will not hesitate to make a report to the relevant authority.
Upholding Paris In Prayer
