 CHURCH CONFERENCE FORMS

The conference has updated many church conference forms. Please do not copy existing forms that you have used in the past, as some forms have been discontinued/modified to make them easier for you.

The following forms are required two weeks prior to your SPRC meeting with the DS:

2021 Pastoral Compensation Form - New Form! Replaces the SPR Report to the DS and Clergy Compensation 

Housing Allowance Exclusion Designation (if applicable)

The PARSONAGE INSPECTION REPORT will not be required this year because of COVID-19 concerns related to physical inspections. If your Trustees or pastors have notable issues related to your parsonage, please provide these concerns to the district office in writing prior to your church SPRC meeting with the DS. Thank you!

Helpful Resources for filling our compensation forms:

2021 Pastoral Compensation Guide

Pension Calculation website: benefits (includes the 2021 Calculator; 2021 Pension Calculation Example; 2021 Health Insurance Rate Information).


NEW THIS YEAR - ALL FORMS ARE DUE ONE WEEK PRIOR TO CHURCH CONFERENCE: Because all conferences will be scheduled virtually in 2020, it is imperative that we receive your church conference packets with all required forms one week prior to your church conference.  It is also important that you submit any additional business items that need approval (ministry candidates, etc.) to our office one week prior. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Whenever possible, please email forms to our office:  grdistrict@neumc.org. If you cannot email, please mail forms to Granite District Office, 19 Norwich Street, Concord, NH 03301. 

These are the church conference forms we will be looking for within your church conference packet:

Links to the above forms may be found HERE

You may send these forms to our office (one week prior) individually, or as part of your church conference packet (one pdf form). Since all church conferences will be held virtually, you will need to be able to share packets with your participants. One electronic version with all forms included may be the easiest way to share with your church people, and the district office.
