The ELCA’s Office of the Secretary has reminded us that all 2018 Congregational forms A and C must be submitted before December 16, when the online system will be shut down. Congregations which have yet to do so are asked to kindly submit forms A and C for 2018 online at the end of the day on December 15.

As a reminder, the congregational numbers reported on these forms determine how many voting members we send to churchwide assembly.
