It's time once again for this important effort that enables the United Church of Christ to maintain accurate and current information on UCC churches and ministerial staff, as well as provide information that will assist Conferences, Associations and the national ministries of the denomination to identify and understand trends in membership, attendance and other factors that will impact programs and policies.
If your church hasn't had its congregational meeting to approve your 2019 budget, the 2019 Pledge Form should still be sent in with estimates. If the final numbers change, please send me your revisions. The SWC can't complete its 2019 budget until we have pledges from all the churches, so it's vital that we at least have estimates from you to work with.
