Move Input Forms
The deadline for pastors and SPR Committees to submit the Move Input forms to the district office is January 16, 2017. Forms were recently mailed to the 2016 SPR Chairs and were emailed to all pastors. Please be sure that your SPR Committee has scheduled a meeting to complete these forms so they can be sent to the district office by the deadline. Certain aspects of the appointment process will be taking place earlier than in the past so it is crucial that the forms be turned in on time! Forms can be downloaded here:
End of Year Reports
End of Year Reports must be entered online through Data Services between January 3-31, 2017. Blank copies of the forms can be obtained now from the conference website. The LaGrange District has a District Statistician Team available to assist churches with the reports. That team is scheduled to meet on December 13. After that date there will be information available here on how to contact the various team members.
Vital Congregation Goals
Each church should update their 4-year goals to include 2020 prior to Charge Conference. This can be done online at www.umvitalcongregations.org. A copy will need to be submitted with other Charge Conference reports.
Vital Signs Dashboard
This weekly, online report went into effect March 25, 2012. An email is sent each Monday morning to the pastor (or to the person the pastor designates) with a link to a form asking for the following information for the previous week: worship attendance, professions of faith, baptisms, persons involved in small groups, persons involved in missions, number of persons served by your congregation, money given to benevolent and charitable ministries, and total offerings. ALL CHURCHES are required to submit this information each week. For questions, contact the District Office.
