We have been studying the book of Nehemiah in the Old Testament. Nehemiah’s one passion was to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and restore the city to its former position. After he got permission from the king, Nehemiah went to Jerusalem. He didn’t tell anyone why he had come or about his plan to rebuild the wall. His first activity when he gets to Jerusalem is to go out at night and look over the wall. He was assessing the condition of the wall. He knew he wanted to rebuild it completely, but he had to assess where the damage was on the wall, what parts were in good shape and what parts needed work. In order to get where he wanted to go, he first had to assess where he was. He had to know the condition of the wall before he could start rebuilding it.

We as a church are at a similar crossroads. We want to plan for our future, we want to move forward with where God is calling us. We believe that God has a bright future for our church. He is moving in so many different ways and it is exciting to be a part of God’s work. But before we can move forward, we have to assess where we are right now. We have to know what areas need improvement and what is going well.

In order to do this, we are asking everyone who calls Westbrook their church home, to fill out the Congregational Assessment Tool. It is a survey that will give us a good picture of where we are as a church and help us zero in on both our strengths and weaknesses. The results of this survey will help us make plans for our future and continue to build on the strong foundation we have established. Would you take a few minutes to fill it out and give us your feedback? All answers are confidential. We have no way of matching any assessment to a particular person, so feel free to candidly share your perceptions, opinions, and experiences. Just click on this link and fill it out.
