First Questions

“…what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” –Micah 6:8, NIV

Greetings to You!

I invite you to participate in the survey below, which is designed to gather information to update the RCA’s online Church Based Community Outreach Resource Guide. As you will recall, the guide lists and describes RCA congregations’ mercy and justice ministries.

We’re grateful to those who completed the original survey and made the production of this informative guide possible. It was first made available on the RCA website in October 2008, and it has been effective in helping churches and communities share ideas.

If the 2008-2009 guide still accurately describes your church’s mercy and justice ministries, you do not need to fill out the survey again—we will simply leave the information pertaining to your church as is. However, if you have added, changed, or discontinued ministries, we’d like to update the guide to reflect those changes. And if you did not get around to completing the original survey, we would now love to include information about the ministries in which your church is engaged.

If you find that your schedule does not allow you to complete the survey, please consider assigning the task to a staff member or another member of your church who is able to do so. We ask only that that the survey be completed to the best of your or their ability. The more complete the information you provide, the more the resource booklet should help others make a difference.

We will close the online survey on September 30, 2009, and we will send you a link to the updated Congregational Outreach Resource Guide four weeks after that date.

Thank you very much. Be blessed.

Earl James,
Coordinator of multiracial ministries and social justice
