Assumption Church Survey - We want to hear from you
Our beloved Panagia, Assumption Greek Orthodox Church, formed a strategic planning committee this past year that is comprised of our Church priests, parish council members, and lay people. The committee is responsible for creating a strategic long-range road map for our Church and its ministries for the next 3 to 5 years:
You are receiving this email because our strategic planning committee has put together a survey to better understand the needs and desires of our Church. Your answers will help serve as a guide for setting priorities for long-term goals and objectives.
A third party provider stores all data and personal information and the survey is confidential. In fact, you never have to put your name on the survey. We provide an option for name and email if it is information you wish to provide, but it is not required.
We will be offering access to the survey from 10/28 to 11/15. You may take the Assumption Church Survey from any computer, phone or by printing the attached document and returning it to the Church office. The survey takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
If you include your email address on the survey, you will receive a copy of your survey answers.
To begin taking the survey, click here, Assumption Church Survey.
Thank you for your time and help in better understanding the needs of our Church members.
