Having the right data can help to bring insight, facts and understanding to congregations, synods, members and partner organizations.
Congregation trend report
Congregation trend reports provide information about a congregation which can be especially helpful during planning or the call process. Trend reports are available to all ELCA congregations and include information like reported membership, average worship attendance and giving. You can find a congregation trend report by looking up the congregation’s name using the ELCA Directory.
Demographic reports provide information about a ZIP code area and its county. A demographic report can help a congregation gain a general understanding of their community and plan mission using that information. You can view a demographic report for an ELCA congregation using the demographic report tool.
Synod reports related to membership, giving, population and demographic changes can be found at the congregational and synodical data resources page.
