Once again, it’s time to prepare the annual reports required each year by the Office of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) (OGA) and Clerk of Session Contact sheet for the presbytery office.

All forms should be completed online at the following links:

  1. Annual Statistical Report is a Book of Order required report, off which your future per capita assessment is based. To complete and submit the Annual Statistical Report for your congregation, you will need the user ID and password that was mailed to your church.
  2. Church Contact Sheet. Provide the contact info of your 2015 Clerk of Sessions and update our records of other important roles in your congregation that may be outdated.

Instructions for the Annual Statistical Report in English, Spanish and Korean.

Deadline: The GA computer is now open to receive information. The deadline for POC congregations to submit statistics is Friday, February 19, 2016.

Be sure you complete this report. Your per capita assessment in 2017 will be based on the figures you submit this year. The OGA will not retroactively change your membership figures if you fail to report them within the proper time limits. Please note that Presbytery must fully pay General Assembly and Synod assessments even for churches that do not pay us.

 

Remember to make copies of the annual statistical report for your own records and include a copy of the summary portion in your session minutes.

 

Presbytery Reports: In addition to the Church Contact Sheet, please send the Presbytery a copy of your congregation’s most recent annual report, when it is available, and a copy of your most recent membership directory. The names and addresses of your congregants will not be made available to outside groups.

 

If You Need Assistance: If you need help in completing any part of this process, please call Kitty Ridley, Executive Assistant, at the presbytery office: 312-488-3010, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. You may also call me, Tuesday through Thursday, at 312-488-3018, with any questions.

 

Clerks of session are urged to give prompt attention to these reports.
