Membership Audit

I have had the pleasure of working with our Membership Secretary, Renata Steiner since I arrived at Shalimar UMC 3 years ago. Renata helps us keep our membership rolls updated each year as new people join and notify us of transfers to other churches. I emphasize notify because unless someone tells us that they have moved or they have joined another church, his or her name stays on our church rolls until we go through a formal process of updating the rolls.

Why Update the Rolls

Many people in our church family have been asking about us doing an audit, or "purging" our rolls, for many reasons. First, our membership numbers are disproportionate to our attendance numbers because we haven't removed anyone who was inactive for about 30 years. Most churches do this process at least every 5 years, with very diligent churches following the process yearly.

The second reason to do it is we pay a percentage of our apportionment based on the number of members on our rolls. Meaning, we are probably paying apportionments for people who we haven't seen at our church in 20 or more years.

Steps Being Taken

Renata has worked hard this year to start the process of updating our church rolls, following the detailed guidelines in The Book of Discipline. The first step was to present the names at Charge Conference, which was done Sunday, November 17, 2019. We will do this 2 more times, with the final list presentation in 2021 being the year they vote that the names listed are indeed inactive members.

The next step is for us to share those names with you, the congregation, that we've been unable to contact. Please review the list and see if you know anyone on it. If you do, please contact them and pass the information back to Renata. Thank you for helping us access our membership properly so that we can care for our congregation.
