Next Friday, Feb. 15, is the deadline for all churches to submit the statistical information that is required by the Book of Discipline. Since adoption of our tithe system, this is also essential input to the conference budgeting process, which takes place in March.
At the time of writing (Feb. 1), 53 churches had completed their reports ... which only leaves 300 or so to go! Full details were sent to churches and pastors in December and January, and can be found on our website, www.cnumc.org/statistics.
For questions that can't be answered from the available resources, please contact me – as soon as possible! I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your help in building an accurate picture of our conference.
