The “Data Kit” for the West Virginia-Western Maryland Synod can be downloaded from the ELCA website by clicking here.

The Data Kit includes the statistical data for congregations of the synod and the synod as a whole as of 31 December 2019. It also includes information drawn from other resources, providing a picture of our territory beyond congregational stats. You will find:

  • WV-WMD Key Facts
  • Map – Population and Average Attendance Change
  • WV-WMD Trend Report
  • Form A Summary
  • Form C Summary
  • Congregation Location and Participation Data
  • Congregation Finances
  • Distribution of Congregations by Average Weekly Worship Attendance – Region 8
  • Percentage of Congregations and Worshipers by Weekly Worship Attendance
  • Median Weekly Worship Attendance per Congregation
  • Average Attendance, Baptized Members, and Active Participants
  • Adult and Child Baptisms by Congregation
  • Community Context – Region 8
  • WV-WMD Demographic Summary
  • COVID-19 Impact Planning Report

It should be noted that the congregational statistics are only as good as the accuracy of the data submitted in parochial reports by the congregations. It should also be noted that fewer than 75% of the congregations file parochial reports.
