THE STATISTICAL TABLES ARE NOW OPEN
Each local church fills out its own report. For churches on a charge, only enter the portion of shared expenses (such as the pastor's salary) paid by your church.
Your username is the 6-digit general church number found in parenthesis on your church's apportionment bill. For pastors you will add a p to the end of the 6 digit number. For treasurers/financial secretaries you will add an o to the end of the 6 digit number (letter o, not number zero).
Your initial password is 12345678. You will be able to reset the password once you login.
All 3 Tables should be completed by March 6, 2020. Yes, this is a real deadline, with a real reason for setting it, and we appreciate your courtesy in meeting it.
Line 40 will not auto-total UNLESS you tab through each of the lines. When you tab through 40a and 40b, then 40 will automatically total up.
Line 50 on Table 2 CANNOT BE ENTERED, NOR WILL IT UPDATE AUTOMATICALLY. There is an update function that we will run each morning to update this line. Login a day or two after you complete your report to print out a good copy. If any information for the church or pastor is incorrect please e-mail to Laura Hatcher (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We use the ending membership number on line 4 in calculating your apportionments. Note that lines 2d and 3c allow you to correct your membership record if you have a difference between the number you show and the names you can count.
We use the expenses shown in lines 37-49 in calculating apportionments. Please read the notes carefully, particularly the one on line 47. Don't make an error that could raise your askings needlessly.
If you upgraded to Windows 10, the new Microsoft Edge browser is not working well with Ezra. You can use Internet Explorer, which is also part of Windows 10, or use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Or, instead of clicking the download link as you normally would, right-click on the link and select "Save As..." Then open the file from where you downloaded it.
For questions or help, please call Beth Acuff at the Administrative Services Office at 800-535-4224 (if local or using a cell phone, call 478-738-0048) or email@example.com. Don't hesitate to contact us. We want your statistical tables to be done correctly, and are certainly willing to assist you!
