July 25, 2023

By: Marsha Patton, Conference Secretary's Office

The Conference Office is collecting information for the 2023 Journal, and we want to hear from you! 

As in years past, we're requesting churches report church and parsonage renovations, remodeling, new buildings, dedications, etc. that took place over the past year (July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023).  The 2022 Journal Historical Data pages gives examples of info reported most recently, starting on page 317. 

  • Examples of of information to report would be: 
    • Question #5: New Church Buildings or Structures:
      • Built Columbarium
    • Question #6: Churches Remodeled:
      • Replaced roof
      • Remodeled restrooms to be handicapped-accessible
      • Remodeled chancel; painted and carpeted sanctuary
      • Installed sump pump 
    • Question #8: Parsonages Remodeled:
      • Installed backyard fence
      • Resurfaced deck, 
      • Replaced all kitchen appliances
  • Other questions include:
    • Dedications / consecrations
    • Selling a parsonage
    • "all other changes" are often activities such as paving the parking lot, upgrading playground equipment, installing a new AV/media system, or purchasing assets like a plot of land or 15-passenger van
  • If in doubt about whether to include something, please do! 
  • If you don't have anything to report, no need to submit a form!

To make this quick and easy, we have created an online form to share these changes.  Please complete the survey form at:
Please submit the online form by Thursday, August 31.

If you had no changes at your church or parsonage, please do not submit the form!  If you have questions, please contact your district office!

We know the last few years have been strange and difficult in many ways, so we look forward to hearing about these positive events in the life of your church!

Thank you for your help!
