We are inviting you to complete the Church Assessment Tool (CAT), an on-line instrument that will help leaders gauge the strength, vitality, and trends in our church.  The information gained from this assessment will be valuable in helping the leaders of Cross Lutheran as they make decisions about the future of insert name of church.
 
Beginning today, we are asking you to go online by clicking on the link provided and tell us about your experiences in and priorities for our church.  Please do not discuss the survey or your answers with others as this may influence their answers.
If you need a paper copy, please come to the office, and we will provide one for you along with a self-addressed stamped return envelope.
 
All answers are strictly anonymous.  We have no way of matching any assessment to a particular person, so please feel free to candidly share your perceptions, opinions and experiences.  Our future together is dependent on your participation and honest answers.
 
If you have questions, please contact Pastor John Sutherland at: pastor@robertscrosslutheran.com or (715)749-3551
