Special Edition

Dear Spry Church Family and Friends,

The Lord is doing amazing things in and through our congregation! It's a joy to serve Jesus with you.

As we keep moving forward in ministry together, we value your input. Below are instructions for completing a survey that will help us further discern where we are as a church and how we can faithfully pursue God's calling together. These are exciting times for us, and I'm convinced the best is yet to come!

Please set aside 20 minutes to take this survey between now and midnight on April 8. Thank you in advance!

Sunday in worship we will continue our Lenten series "The Journey." We'll look at how what is lost can, by God's grace, be found. If you've ever felt unworthy and undeserving of God's love, this message is especially for you. Our worship will include a special announcement in each service as we recognize two people from our church who are following God's call in a remarkable way.

Again, please follow the survey instructions below and complete this survey by April 8. I suggest doing it now before you have to move onto other things or forget. :) Your input will help us in our ongoing discernment of God's call.

Thank you, Spry Church, and see you in worship!


Dear Church member,

Grace and peace to you through our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ!  We are taking seriously our call to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.  As your church continues following where God leads, we are asking for members of the congregation to complete a Readiness 360 online survey.  The Readiness 360 survey helps a church to discover exactly where it is in four key areas, so that it can see which way to go and what path will most dependably get it moving toward God’s preferred future.  The Readiness 360 will help identify opportunities for assessing the church’s spiritual intensity, relationships, missional alignment, and cultural openness. It is important that as many people as possible take the survey. The more people who take the survey, the more complete the report will be.  After everyone takes the survey, next steps will be discoverable.


Please click on the following link to Log in to the survey: https://app.readiness360.org/survey/login

Type in your congregation’s survey Code: 1111213852 You do not need a pin number.  Set aside 20 minutes to take the survey between, March 24, 2019 and April 8, 2019 by midnight.


If you have questions, please contact the Equipping Vital Congregations Office at 717-545-0525 or evcoffice@susumc.org


Thank you in advance for helping your congregation assess how you will propel into new faithful possibilities to reach new and more people for Christ in new ways.
