Take Our Communion Survey (Plus News Briefs)

by | 4 August, 2022 | 0 comments

THIS SURVEY CLOSED AT MIDNIGHT FRIDAY. RESULTS WILL BE POSTED AUG. 10 —

Is your church still purchasing prepackaged Communion emblems for people to pick up as they gather for your in-person worship services, or have you gone back to preparing Communion trays on-site and passing them one person to another? 

Christian Standard has prepared a brief survey to determine how churches are practicing Communion today, now that many health restrictions have been lifted. All churchgoers are welcome to fill out the survey, which should take less than 2 minutes to complete. Responses are welcome until midnight Friday, Aug. 5. We will share the results next week.
