Tables 2021

Instructions

The EZRA system is now available for filling out the Tables information. PLEASE NOTE THE PASSWORDS ARE CLEARED with the launching of each year, see instructions below.

  1. All churches are required to complete Table 1, Table 2 Supplement, Table 2 and Table 3.  Mission Congregation are required to complete only Table 1.  Please heed to the following tips and instructions as you begin entering the Tables information for your local church.
  2. Please note that we will be sending this in email to multiple contacts for your Church in order to get the information to the correct person.
  3. The Church User Guide is on this page (calpacumc.org/tables). You can also go directly to: https://ezra.gcfa.org/
  4. We have created two users for each church.  Please DO NOT share User IDs.  If additional users are necessary, contact Kathy Trcopan at the Conference office at ktrcopan@calpacumc.org
  5. The User ID is your church GCFA number followed by the letter “p” for the primary user and the letter “o” for the other user (if there is one).  If you don’t know your GCFA number, it is located on your monthly giving statement.  You can also contact the District Statistician (listed in “02. Assistance” under “The Details” of this page) or Conference office at ktrcopan@calpacumc.org to get the number.
  6. The temporary password is: calpac  The system will require you to change it to your own password when you log in.  Note your password from last year has been cleared and you will need to create a new one or recreate it for this year.
  7. Our conference does not use Alignment Number so leave that box with zeros.
  8. Please complete “Table 2 Supplement” before you move to Table 2 as there is data on the Table 2 Supplement that will auto-fill in the Table 2.
  9. The Table 2 and Table 2 Supplement are customized for California-Pacific Annual Conference. It will not match what is on the GCFA web site.
  10. Please email your district statisticians if you need help with the Tables.

The deadline for the Tables completion is Monday, February 28, 2022.

Paragraph 340 from the 2016 Book of Discipline is clear on the responsibility of Elders and Licensed Pastors regarding Tables data submission: ¶340.2.(c)(2)(f) To care for all church records and local church financial obligations, and certify the accuracy of all financial, membership, and any other reports submitted by the local church to the annual conference for use in apportioning costs back to the church.

By submitting via EZRA your Tables 1, 2 Supplement, 2 & 3 in a timely manner the conference can meet GCFA’s deadline for data submission. Granting extension to the already established deadline will delay our submission to GCFA and hinder the work in the entire connection.

Notes:
  • All Tables are for the calendar year 2021.
  • The previous year data will show in the column to the left of the 2021 entry box.
  • Table 1 is for membership and worship reporting.
  • Table 2 Supplement is for Pastor(s) expense information.
    • Table 2 Supplement is breakdown of all pastors’ salaries, pension, health, housing and any salary assistance appointed to your local church. The lead pastor’s salary, pension and health benefits receive 80% reduction before apportionments are calculated. If your church had more than one lead pastor in the calendar year 2021, combine the personnel expenses to reflect the entire year.
    • The Conference needs names of Associate Pastors. During the process of recording information, a warning box will pop-up after you try to save, please type the name of Associate Pastor in the box. The second language Associate Pastors appointed by Bishop qualify for 80% deduction for apportionment calculation; therefore, we require the associate pastor(s)’s name and relevant information.
  • Table 2 is for reporting the church assets and operating expenses.
  • Table 3 is for reporting church income.

Please do not hesitate to email (ktrcopan@calpacumc.org) or call the conference office or your district statistician if you need any help with the Tables – we will be happy to assist you.
