UMC budget struggle

Only 14 of the United Methodist Church's 63 annual conferences or districts in the U.S. paid 100 percent of the money asked of them for 2009 by the denomination to support global ministries.

United Methodist News Service said the total collected was $24 million short of the $150.3 million budgeted.

The UMC is a full communion partner of the ELCA.
