Welcome!  This page contains documents to aid you in submitting your end-of year Local Church Report to the Annual Conference. You will use the Michigan UMC’s database, Ezra, (ezra.gcfa.org) to log in, select the Statistics icon, and select Enter Stats to submit the Tables 1, 2, and 3 report. Find your user name (GCNO.) 

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 2020 report is December 30, 2020 to January 30, 2021.  Thank you in advance for completing the report accurately and on time.
