Do we really need to do an annual financial review?

The answer to this question is always YES! First because the Book of Order mandates that an annual review is done (G-3.0113). Second because it is a best practice for handling the finances of any organization. And it doesn’t matter how long a church has had the same treasurer. Here is a local horror story from a church of other denomination in Washington County, Ohio, as reported in the Marietta Times.
