How are you coming on that Yearbook questionnaire of CRC church membership information? I receive several phone calls and emails each year asking how the denominational office gets the member count for pension and ministry shares. Yes, it is from the front page of the Yearbook questionnaire that is due October 15. You are requested to self-report your membership numbers as a church each year as of August 31. These numbers will be in effect for pension and ministry share counts for the new year starting in January. Therefore, it is important that whoever is counting needs to be talking to the treasurer so the treasurer is basing the budget on the right numbers. The Yearbook questionnaire data is also used by the denomination to track other information. Thanks for updating your information again this year. If you need another copy of this form, please call the Yearbook office at 616-224-0833 or 800-272-5125 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
