What’s Happening at OLUMC
The Lay Leadership is conducting a survey of all members and regular visitors of the Oak Lawn United Methodist Church. The purpose of the survey is to inventory the beliefs, opinions, attitudes, and values of all our congregation regarding Oak Lawn and our ministries. We shall use this information to better respond to the needs of our congregation and our community.
The survey will be available both online and as a printed copy. While we would encourage you to respond online, if you would prefer, you can make your responses on the printed copies. Copies of the survey will be available at the church for you to complete. We are also making arrangements to mail the surveys to those who cannot come to the church.
You will find the survey at this web link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/OLUMC2018A
It is a rather long questionnaire, so fix yourself a cup of coffee and sit down to answer as many of the questions as you can.
Please complete this survey and submit it online, or return it to the Church by Friday, June 1st. We shall report the results to the Congregation during the first week of June.
Know that your responses are completely anonymous. No one individual can be identified and all responses will be reported as a group.
Please take the time and effort necessary to complete this survey. Your work will be rewarded by helping Lay Leadership collaborate with you in building a church that represents your needs, as well as those of our Oak Lawn community.
If you have any questions about this survey or its contents, or if you have problems completing it, please contact Jim Parsons, Lay Leader, firstname.lastname@example.org, 214-418-4113.
Thank you for your participation.
