Calling Young Adults!!!

My parish has noticed that we have few parishioners between the ages of 26-44. We are well below the national average, even though the population in our town for this age is higher than the national average. in an attempt to know how to reach out to this age group, we are doing a "survey" to see how the spiritual needs of this group can be addressed. (Nevermind the fact that I and 4 members of the vestry are in tis age group... but we'll let the vestry do their little study LOL- meanwhile I'll meet with the other young adults at the bar for Theology on Tap LOL)... Seriously, if you could take the time to send me a response to the following questions, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks!!! Rob+

1. What is your age?
2. What is your gender?
3. Single, Married, Domestic Partnership, Other
4. Do you have children? Ages?
4. Do you attend church regularly?
5. If so, what do you like most about the church you attend?
6. What is your favorite memory of church?
7. What keeps you going back to your church week after week?
8. if you do not go to church, what would you be looking for in a church should you decide to begin attending a church?
9. In a perfect world, what would your church experince be like?
10. What would it take to get you actively involved in a church?

Thanks y'all!!! I appreciate it. Feel free to add any other comments you'd like to make as well. Peace Rob+
