Reports Due

Clergy Evaluations


SPR Committees should meet with their appointed clergy to complete the annual evaluation forms and submit signed copies to the District Office no later than September 14, 2018.  There are 5 clergy in the LaGrange District who have been selected by the Conference to participate in the LPLI 360 online evaluations process.  These clergy have been notified.  In addition, there is a separate evaluation form for pastors serving in their first year of a new appointment.  All forms can be dowloaded below.  You will notice that there is an "instruction" sheet with suggestions for starting the conversation and a separate sheet that is to be turned in to the district office.  Please contact the district office if you have questions about any of these.

Charge Conference Reports


Please note that there is a new Charge Conference checklist for the 2018 Charge Conferences!  In addition, several of the reports on Data Services have changed, as has the login requirements for Data Services.  Everything is explained in detail in the Charge Conference Instruction handout.  Also, please note that all items requiring a vote at Charge Conference must be approved at a Church Council meeting prior to the Charge Conference.  The checklist will ask you to verify that this vote has taken place and requires the signature of the pastor, church council chair, and SPR chair.  Below are copies of various documents that can be downloaded:

Vital Congregation Goals

Each church should update their 4-year goals to include 2022 prior to Charge Conference.  This can be done online at www.umvitalcongregations.org. The goals for the next 4 years will need to be reported on the "Items to be Approved at Charge Conference" form.  There is also a link on the Charge Conference tab of Data Services.

 

 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.
