This Week – June 16, 2013
We learned a LOT about ourselves in the recent Sunday morning survey in which many of you participated. Shortly you will receive a full report about this survey from a team of folks who have helped us to interpret the study, so be on the alert for this. In the meantime, here are a few observations.
Based upon the twelve hundred or so folks who took the survey:
- 90% have been Christians for more ten years.
- We are multigenerational with all age groups fairly well represented. 15% of the congregation is 66 or older. 23% of the congregation is between 19 and 35.
- Well over half of the congregants (58%) have sought healing prayer for themselves or for a friend or family member.
- 42% of congregants with children 18 or under said they are “too busy” to spend time educating their children about faith. On a more encouraging note, 69% reported praying with their children “daily” or “several times a week.”
More to come.
