The Synod of Lakes & Prairies exists to support and identify how to help the presbyteries and their churches achieve their mission. Some of the services provided to presbyteries include, but are not limited to

  • Bookkeeping Services

    The Synod offers the management of monthly transaction processing, financial, and remittance reporting for presbyteries seeking a low-cost means of ensuring financial transparency and controls.

  • Payroll Services

    The Synod offers payroll services, including tax depositing and reporting for presbyteries, churches, and camps seeking a low-cost means of providing semi-monthly payroll and benefits with online information access for their employees.

  • Loans

    The Synod offers application assistance for churches seeking loans for capital improvements and significant projects through the Presbyterian Investment and Loan Program. For these loans, the Synod can offer compensating deposit balances to help churches qualify for discounts on these loans.

  • Investments

    The Synod provides strategic guidance on investment allocation, as well as group pricing discounts for portfolio management services provided by the New Covenant Trust Company.
