Parochial Reports Due February 15
Parochial reports contain important data used in planning not only for congregational mission and ministry, but also for the collective mission of our whole church. Data complied from the reports over a period of time reflects trends in the congregation, trends in society, and opportunities for ministry and spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. In addition, maintaining and filing accurate parochial reports is part of the terms of the call of pastors called to congregations, outlined in C9.12 of the ELCA model constitution for synods.
Forms for the parochial report can be filed electronically through the ELCA. Please make submitting these forms a priority and call the director of official roster records for the ELCA at 800-638-3522 ext. 2810.
Look for highlights from the 2011 reports as they relate to our synod coming soon!
