Church Health Assessment Survey

By · Comments (0)

This survey is called “The Basic Level of Church Health.”

Click Here to Do the Survey

The purpose is to gain insight about some key areas of church health at this time in the season of transition. You may also add brief additional comments in the comments section for each question. The information gathered will help us to identify areas of strength and areas that need further attention during this time of transition. The results of this assessment will be presented to the congregation at a meeting on November 12.

Please note that you must complete this survey in one sitting.
The length of time it takes will depend on how many additional comments you want to add at each point: 5 minutes for the basics, 30 minutes for those who have lots to say! (And we want to hear it.) You can however take a peak at the survey to see what will be required, enter nothing, and them come back when you know you have time.

By my count there are 62 one-another/each other statements in the New Testatment. Sixteen of the simply say “love one another.” The other 40+ explain what that actually means and looks like.  Here is a pdf of those passages, in order of their appearance:

A transitional update meeting was held the evening of August 24 at The Hub. Approximately 40 people were in attendance.

The transitional pastor gave an update and shared some decisions the board of elders has made as well as plans for the fall. Opportunities for questions were given at various points with many good questions asked.

The meeting concluded with a time of prayer in small clusters of people.

See the slides from the meeting here.
