Tips for On-Line Statistical Reporting for the Office of General Assembly
Enter the information on the on-line reporting site linked above. You can come and go from the reporting site and make as many changes as necessary until you click “Submit” or until the deadline date of Thursday, February 14, 2019. Remember, the Session needs to approve the report as soon as possible after December 31, 2018. This is a Session report and does not require approval at the congregational meeting.
The best place to print is from the “Church Report” menu on-line. The “church report” feature is a two-page summary of all the information that you entered. This is the report you should include in your session minute book.
