From the Stated Clerk

Greetings in the Lord.

It’s time once again to gather annual statistical information.   Here is the link to the portal to enter statistics in the GA’s database: http://oga.pcusa.org/stats

I encourage you to complete your report and enter it as soon as possible.  The deadline for all submissions is February 12, 2021.   The presbytery collects contact information for churches and local staff and you’ll find a separate form here:

Information Needed by the Presbytery

The Pastoral Transitions Commission requests that each church also complete the 2021 Terms of Call form for pastoral leadership. The form is located here:

2021 Terms of Call Form

A gentle reminder that statistical information is required of all churches (Book of Order G-3.0202f).  The higher councils of our church use statistical information to determine representation, set per capita ratios, etc.  Thank you in advance for attending to this important shared responsibility.

If your session has elected a new clerk, please forward this information to them and update the presbytery office with name and contact information.  A Zoom orientation/refresher course for clerks of session was held on Saturday, January 16, 2021. Here is the link to the training:   https://youtu.be/qa7HWqt4MvU

If you have any questions, please contact me at [email protected]  or 859-264-8867.  Robyn and I are willing to assist you if you need help.  Thank you again, and God’s blessings in this Christmas season.

Peace,

The Rev. Jerry L. Utt, II
