Annual Congregation Report
As in previous years, all ELCA congregations, synod-authorized worshiping communities (SAWCs), and new starts will need to complete the annual congregation report. The ELCA has updated the process to submit this report and there is now only one form to complete, Form A, which asks for congregation statistics and financial data. The kinds of questions previously asked on Form C will instead be gathered through surveys throughout the year.
The Annual Congregation Report packet will be mailed in mid-January. The packet will contain a paper copy of Form A, instructional documents, and the password that congregations or communities will use to file their report online. The online system for Form A for 2023 will open in mid-January. It will be accessible at elca.org/ congregationreport. A blank, generic version of Form A is available at elca.org/reportinstructions so congregations that wish to begin compiling their data can do so.
If any congregation, SAWC, or new start still wishes to file 2022 reports, they must do so before the online system for filing Form A and Form C for 2022 shuts down on Thursday, December 21, 2023.
