Reporting Historical Changes for the 2021 Journal
August 9, 2021
By: Marsha Patton, Conference Secretary's Office
The Conference Office is working to pull together information for the 2021 Journal, and as in years past, is requesting churches to report data on church and parsonage renovations, remodeling, new buildings, dedications, etc. that took place over the past year (July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021). For your reference, a copy of the 2020 Journal Historical Data pages gives examples of information reported in the past.
- Examples of Question #6: Churches Remodeled could be:
- Replaced roof
- Remodeled restrooms to be handicapped-accessible
- Remodeled chancel; painted and carpeted sanctuary
- Installed sump pump
- Other questions include:
- Dedications / consecrations
- Parsonage changes, such as purchase or building, remodeling, or selling a parsonage.
- "all other changes" are often activities such as paving the parking lot, 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 form at:
Please submit the online form by Sunday, August 15, 2021.
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 2021 has been a strange and difficult year in many ways, so we look forward to hearing about these positive events in the life of your church!
Thank you for your help!
