Post-It Note Results for January

On Sunday, January 21, the Communications Committee posed its first “Post-It Note” question to the congregation at the 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. services. The response was amazing–23 at the 8:00 service and 121 at the 10:00 service. The question was: How were you blessed today?

The chart below reflects the results, broken down into major categories.  On the post-its that had multiple blessings, each one was placed into the appropriate categories.

Here is one of the responses that caught the Committee’s attention and represented the top categories: “I am blessed today by the love and support of this community, by a sermon that is meaningful and the knowledge of God’s second (and beyond) chances. It was also a blessing to see Armand at the alter”

There was one respondent who said they would feel more blessed if we had a true Rite 1 service as we advertise.

The Communications Committee plans to ask one question each month with the goal of improving our internal communication by listening to all of you!
