Annual Online Assessment now open April 12-May 13 

Our annual assessment provides an important opportunity to work together to assess who we are and where we see ourselves going.  This survey was developed by the Hartford Institute for Religion Research in Connecticut (www.hartfordinstitute.org) and then modified for our use at UUCR.

The survey not only asks several sets of questions about our congregation’s current ministries and your own involvement, but also seeks your input on church dynamics and your vision for our future. Completing this survey ensures that your views have been heard and it will allow us to measure whether we are moving in directions that we think are important. We ask that each member of your household over the age of 15 complete the survey.

You may complete this survey online or on paper.  To complete the survey online, follow this link:  http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/uuroanoke2018  If you would rather complete the paper survey, you can pick one up in the church office or by contacting Lynn Yates (ljyates8@gmail.com).  There will be some available in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday mornings, also.  Please return them to the church by May 13 so that your responses can be included in the results.

This survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Your responses are anonymous. Thank you for your cooperation. We hope you enjoy filling out the questionnaire and that in addition to assisting our church, you find this process helpful in reflecting on your faith, the meaning of your church experience, and your hopes for the future.

If you have any questions about the survey, contact Lynn Yates at ljyates8@gmail.com.
