As you may or may not know, Smyrna First UMC is currently contemplating a major capital campaign to raise the funds needed to reduce debt, renovate Fellowship Hall and possibly acquire land for future growth. In fact, we are now in the process of conducting a Fundraising Feasibility & Planning Study to assess how much we can feasibly expect to raise and to get member feedback and suggestions about our proposed project and plans.
This process has already involved conducting a member-wide informational meeting and a number of personal, confidential interviews with select members.
Now, we are inviting all of our member households to participate in this study by going to the following on-line webpage to read about the proposed project and complete a brief, online survey questionnaire. Individual responses on these survey forms are encouraged but we also ask that only one survey per household be completed. All surveys responses will be strictly confidential and will only be seen and tabulated by Walsh & Associates, Church Fundraising Specialists – the firm we’ve hired to conduct the study for us. Here is the link to information about the project and the online survey questionnaire.
To be included in our analysis and report, all responses must be received by no later than Saturday, October 25. So please plan to participate by or before then.
Thank you for your helpful feedback and support of our church. This project, we believe, is another positive step that will help us to better do
