Church yearbook reporting ends for 2021
Mar 3 all-day

Submitting your church’s yearbook information keeps data up-to-date on the UCC’s Find a Church feature, Access UCC, and the annual Yearbook Directory. This information also helps the denomination track trends so they can better serve our local churches. If you neglect to update your yearbook data, the program will continue to list the last recorded year’s data which results in inaccurate tracking and can make it harder for new congregants to find you. Learn more on our Forms page.
