Important!! Watch for this Form from the Pennsylvania Department of State
The Pennsylvania Department of State is requesting a Decennial Report on the continuing use of the corporate name of each of our churches by December 31, 2011. The state is charging a $70.00 fee for the filing. Our Synod of the Trinity is working on a group response that will save the fee and the work of complying. Do not complete this form at this time. Further information will be coming from the Synod.
