Local Church Forms/Information
Forms, Forms, Forms. It seems that we are awash in forms!
This website may not be able to help with that, but hopefully you will be able to find what you need here!
On this page, and the menu on the left, you will find links to the areas for forms most needed by local churches. Hopefully the forms are clear and easy to use, and the due dates are well known. But if not, your first line of support is your district office. The district administrative assistant should be able to help you know what you need and how to use it.
For assistance with financial forms, you can check with the Stewardship office at the annual conference center. Call 1-800-593-7539 option 3 (Toll Free), or 503-802-9220 (Direct) or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
