Want to help some students research how churches are responding to the pandemic? My friend @ericaboldenow is conducting a study on how the pandemic is affecting corporate worship services. It will be interesting to see how it ties in with the presentation on how churches historically responded to pandemics by @dstrong.
If you’d like to help, please fill out the the survey!
And here’s the description of the study:
The Covid-19 pandemic has created a series of difficult choices for churches. Churches want to protect their congregations physically and spiritually. This has led to a wide range of responses from churches that affected how Christians worship together on Sundays. Our class project is part of a larger COVID worship study through Calvin University that seeks to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic has influenced corporate worship practices in Christian churches.
We are hoping to gather information from a wide range of church denominations, church sizes, geographical regions, and multicultural backgrounds to better understand what decisions were made and also how those decisions were made.
The survey is voluntary and should take approximately 10-15 minutes to answer. The survey information will be kept confidential. When the results of the research are presented in class or are published, no individual or identifying information about you or your church will be shared.
