2016 Year-End Local Church Report now open; deadline is Feb. 13, 2017
The 2016 Year-End Local Church Report is now available for all churches to complete via the Local Church Dashboard at www.umcna.org/dashboard. Churches are asked to complete this annual report by February 13, 2017.
Conference Statistician Rev. Stephen R. Benefield says, “Before we go headlong into the new year, it’s time to take one last look back at 2016. That’s right: Local Church Statistical Reports are upon us, right on schedule! By understanding what is happening at the local level for each congregation, both our Annual Conference and the General Conference will have the information they need to help equip our churches to help make disciples for Jesus Christ. For the sake of this important work, please provide all requested information as accurately and completely as possible.”
The online form went live Thursday, January 5, 2017. This marks the tenth year North Alabama congregations will submit their year-end statistical report online.
