Forum: The CAT Survey: What Does a Survey Report Look Like? Interim Lead Pastor Chris Smith will lead this forum. As part of being a congregation in intentional transition, every person affiliated with Pilgrim Lutheran Church will be invited to complete the Congregation Assessment Tool (CAT) survey. The goal is to provide a survey process that includes as many community members as possible so that the resulting data provide a comprehensive picture of the congregation. Our time during this forum will look at a sample survey report, providing participant with an understanding of what they can expect from the survey process. We’ll also be seeking ideas from participants about what we can do to follow up once the survey for Pilgrim has been received. Thursday, April 1, Maundy Thursday (Zoom link) – Pastor Jen Rome, preaching, Mark 14:12-25. Resume the celebration of Holy Communion. It’s been so long since we have been able to share in Holy Communion together! With Zoom whole group conversations and breakout rooms, we will have dinner with each other (just eat dinner while on Zoom), share memories of Holy Communion, explore the bible story of Jesus celebrating the Passover meal with the disciples, and create a home table-altar to use to celebrate Holy Communion during Maundy Thursday Zoom worship. This is for all Pilgrims, including those who would like to begin receiving communion as well as those already communing. For children and others receiving communion for the first time or who would like to mark this time of learning about communion, we will have a special moment during worship to mark this milestone moment. (Meal time and conversation begin at 6:00pm; worship begins at 6:30pm) Friday, April 2, Good Friday (Zoom link) – Pastor Chris Smith preaching, Mark 14:26-15:47. Worship begins at 7:00pm. Sunday, April 4, Easter Sunday (Zoom link) – Pastor Chris Smith preaching, Mark 16:1-8. Worship begins at 9:30am (there is no forum following worship on April 4).
