All Cal-Nev Churches Have Been Added to Vital Signs

April 05, 2012

As of this week, only a handful of churches in the California-Nevada Annual Conference had not registered with the Communications Office to become part of the Vital Signs process – entering data relevant to attendance, the number of persons involved in mission/outreach and in small groups, the number of professions of faith, charitable giving, and total offering.
We had registered churches only when they requested to be added to the system and provided us with the email address they wished to use to receive their weekly Vital Signs reminder emails. However, recently we became aware that some churches mistakenly had thought they were registered – when they contacted us to ask why they were not able to enter their information.
With that in mind, we made the decision to sign up the remaining churches with Vital Signs, as a convenience to them.
If your church has not previously received an email from "The United Methodist Church – (Vital Signs Group)" at the address, you can expect to find one in your In Box on Monday morning (at the email address that the Conference has on file for your church or pastor). The email will contain a link to your church's reporting page.
If your church does not wish to participate, or if you have any questions about the process, please contact me at, or Technologies Specialist Jane Horstman at
To ensure proper delivery of Vital Signs emails, please add the sender to your email safe list or address book.
