Update: the parish profile survey period has ended.
The parish profile survey is online at [location removed]. You can download a PDF of the survey [location removed], and return it to the church office. Please complete the survey online or return it to church by April 29, 2014.
Who should take the survey?
We hope to hear from everyone at St. Martin-in-the-Fields. Please keep in mind that your responses are for yourself as an individual, not for your entire household. Please take some time to share your thoughts and feelings about our parish and what skills and talents we should seek in a new rector.
About the survey
The Profile Committee has developed this survey as a first step in preparing our parish profile. The survey is an essential part of the discernment process in calling a new rector.
Having problems with multiple household members taking the survey?
The survey uses a cookie to allow the internet browser to keep track of where the respondent is in the survey. After one person completes the survey, it will not allow another user to take it. The easiest way to have more than one person in a household complete the survey is to use another device (PC, tablet, laptop) or a different browser than the first respondent (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.). If this is not possible, deleting the cookies from the browser cache will allow the survey to be retaken.
Need additional help with the survey?
If you know of anyone who has not had an opportunity to fill out a survey or anyone who needs assistance in filling out a form, please let a member of the Profile Committee know as soon as possible. You can reach the committee by email at [email address removed].
Prayer as we search for a new rector
Almighty God, you know the needs of your Church in every place: look graciously upon us, the people of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, and grant us the guidance of your Holy Spirit as we seek a new Rector for this parish.
Give us discernment, wisdom, and confidence in your timing.
Guide the members of our Search Committee, as they labor to be faithful in seeking your will.
We pray for the life of our parish, that we may continue to be strengthened in our mission to be Jesus Christ’s heart, hands and feet to our neighbors no matter where they are on their journey of faith.
Bless us with mutual trust and respect, courage, and foresight as you shepherd our community through its journey.
Grace us with continuous direction and inspire us toward genuine self-reflection.
All this we ask as we walk in your ways to the glory of your name. Amen.
