Worship Survey February 2021
In March, we will mark the one–year anniversary of computer-based "virtual" worship services at St. Peter’s due to the ongoing pandemic. While we hope to gather for traditional in-person worship this Spring, we would like to get your feedback on our current "virtual" worship formats, as well as receive input on taking the next steps to return to traditional in-person worship as restrictions ease.
Do you participate in the Zoom Worship Services? Zoom Worship is our current delivery of Sunday worship where congregants use Zoom to participate in a "real-time" worship service at 10 am each Sunday morning with the ability to see and chat with Pastor, lectures, and fellow parishioners.
I regularly join in the Sunday morning 10 am Zoom Worship Services - at least 2 or more times per month.
I DO NOT join in the Sunday morning 10 am Zoom Worship Services but prefer to watch the recorded service at a later time during the day or week.
I join in the 10 am Sunday morning Zoom Worship Service when my schedule permits and watch the recorded services when I cannot be on Zoom.
I do not watch or participate in ANY form of electronic Worship Service, Zoom or recorded, at this time.
Please explain why you selected the choice above. Feel free to check more than one box.
I participate in Zoom Worship Services because I feel it is important to worship together on Sunday mornings in real-time, together as one united congregation.
I really enjoy the "live" social aspect of the Zoom Worship Service. I like to see and chat with friends.
I enjoy the flexibility of watching the recorded services on my own schedule.
I prefer the recorded Worship Services because I can skip to the "important" parts and save time.
I do not participate in Zoom Worship Services because I have to attend too many Zoom meetings during the week. I am totally "Zoomed out" by Sundays.
I do not participate in Zoom Worship Services because I cannot focus on the message. Zoom is too distracting for worship.
I do not participate in any type of virtual worship services because I do not have access to a computer.
I do not participate in any type of Zoom or recorded Worship Services because I do not feel it is "real church." It is not an authentic experience.
I would like to share feedback, good or bad, regarding the ZOOM Worship Services. (OPTIONAL - 40 words or less.)
I would like to share feedback, good or bad, regarding the RECORDED Worship Services. (OPTIONAL - 40 words or less.)
We are planning an Outdoor In-Person Easter Service at Weingartner Park at 10 am weather permitting, with social distancing rules in place. We would like to know more about the interest level in our congregation. Please select what most applies to you.
I am definitely interested and would attend!
My attendance would depend on my vaccination status or health at that time.
I would not attend - I am not comfortable with gathering in-person yet.
I would not attend due to the park setting - mobility or other issues would make it difficult for me.
I will not be available on Easter Sunday morning.
Would your family or young guests have interest in participating in a socially distanced Easter Egg hunt in the park following the outdoor Easter service? If yes - how many children do you anticipate bringing?
Starting sometime after Easter, we hope to return to in-person worship services and have a small in-person service in the sanctuary at 8:30 am and an in-person outdoor service on the lawn at 10 am. Which one would you prefer?
I would like to worship inside the church if at all possible.
I would prefer to worship outdoors this spring. I would feel safer.
I am still not ready for any in-person options at this time, either indoors or outdoors.
During this pandemic, we have made many new connections to people far away. We are starting to determine what our continued online church presence will look like after the pandemic is “under control” and when worship is a mostly in-person experience again. Would you be interested in participating in this discussion?
Yes, I think it is vital for St. Peter's to have a continued online presence. I would love to share my ideas and knowledge.
Yes, I think it would be good to continue our ministry online. I am not totally comfortable with technology but I would love to help explore creative ideas!
No, I am not interested in participating in that discussion.
What is hardest for you during the late stages of the pandemic? Please check everything that applies.
I am bored.
I am lonely.
I am more busy than pre-pandemic.
Family responsibilties have been overwhelming.
It has been hard to balance work and family life.
I am scared for the future.
I am more easily frustrated with my immediate household members.
I feel "unexplained" stress and/or anxiety.
I have acquired unhealthy eating, sleeping, or other habits.
I am worried about what will come next. Will life return to "how it was?"
Tell us two things you have learned during this most unusual year.
Can the church, pastor, or staff help you in any way? If you would like to be contacted, please provide your name and contact information (phone or email).
How are you and your family managing during this time?
We are managing fine. We have adapted and are closer.
We experience some bad days but we manage to get through them.
One or more of us could use some help/counseling or a phone call from the pastor.
How connected do you feel to your church during this difficult time? Please choose all that apply.
I feel very connected because of frequent emails and the adaptive, online worship services.
I feel our church is working hard to keep everybody connected as much as possible.
I feel somewhat disconnected because I miss people and the social aspect of church.
I have felt very disconnected spiritually. I struggle to worship "alone."
I actually feel a little bit more connected than before.
Is the church ministry helping you to get through this time? Please check all that apply.
Yes, every week I find something in the daily emails or worship services that speaks to me.
The help and support of friends and family is the most important key to "surviving" these times..
It is comforting to know that the church ministry, such as food drives, Bible Studies, and social ministry activities continue. It is important that the church is not "closed."
This crisis has helped me to appreciate our church community and ministry more.
The "routine" of worshiping regularly is a great comfort.
I enjoy the mental stimulation of scripture analysis, through the daily emails, worship, or formal studies. It is important to keep my brain active.
The church ministry has little affect on my daily life.
Staff and Church Council are constantly evaluating what we can do better in a time that has few blue prints. Please bring to our attention any idea you may have of something that would be helpful to you or other people in the community:
Do you have any other comments or feedback?
OPTIONAL: My name and email address.
