ELCA annual report time! Don't wait to get these important reports completed.

It is that time of year--when the annual reports for all rostered ministers should be submitted, as well as Form A and C parochial reports for congregations. We did much better last year getting the reports done and in, but we still have a way to go! Let's shoot for 100% participation!
