As required by the Book of Discipline, the submission of this annual report (even if done by staff or a volunteer,) is ultimately the appointed pastor’s responsibility (¶244.3.) The window of time for submitting your 2019 report is December 30, 2019 to January 30, 2020. Thank you in advance for completing the report accurately and on time.
