The ‘Pulse of the Congregation’ is an anonymous survey that the Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (ERUUF) conducts every year to obtain input of members and friends about how we are doing as a congregation. In essence, it asks for your feedback on the Ministry at ERUUF. We define Ministry as that which we all do together as members of our faith community. Each part of the congregation - members, friends, leaders, staff, and ministers - has a role to play in furthering the Ministry and achieving our mission of spirit, service, justice and love.

The surveys are read by the Board of Trustees Committee on the Evaluation of Ministry. The Committee prepares a report for the Board and Lead Minister. One part of the report is statistical, charting changes over time. The other part summarizes the narrative comments. The Board of Trustees uses the information to develop policy and set directions for the Fellowship. 

This Survey asks questions on four topics: 1. Questions regarding your experience at ERUUF. 2. Questions asking for your opinion about how well programs offered at ERUUF are functioning, 3. Questions asking you to reflect on overall congregational involvement and your own personal involvement in the Ministry of ERUUF, and 4. Space for your comments about any aspects of ERUUF’s functioning.

This year, we are also asking you to reflect on the role that ERUUF can play in this new political climate.
