The Church of the Brethren Yearbook is now offering resources that may be downloaded and printed from a new web page at www.brethren.org/yearbook.
The Yearbook is published annually by Brethren Press. It includes statistics as reported by congregations and districts and a denominational directory of districts, congregations, ministers, and more.
The new web page provides instructions and other resources to assist congregations and districts in submitting their annual Yearbook forms, which are a vital way for the denomination to stay connected. Paper copies of the forms have been mailed to each congregation and district.
April 15 is the deadline for congregational forms to be received by the Yearbook office in order for information to be included in the 2021 Yearbook.
Resources now available on the new web page include:
— for congregations: Yearbook forms instructions, guidance for reporting worship attendance for 2020, and the Statistical Form as a fillable PDF;
— for districts: Yearbook forms instructions (forms due April 5);
— published statistical data including the Denominational Five-Year Comparison 2015-2019 and district statistics for 2019.
For questions contact Jim Miner, Yearbook specialist, at 800-323-8039 ext. 320 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Mail completed forms to Yearbook, Church of the Brethren, 1451 Dundee Ave., Elgin, IL 60120.
