                         TIME AND TALENTS SUBCOMMITTEE
                                 QUESTIONNAIRE

Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

Believing that our call to stewardship involves more than just our money, the Stewardship Committee has
created a new subcommittee—the Time and Talents Subcommittee. The objective of the group is to explore
and promote the ways in which we, as God’s people, can share our time, talents and treasures both within our
congregation and the community. We are all called as disciples, and thus, must live out God’s mission for us.

In pursuit of this objective, the Time and Talents Subcommittee is collecting information about our members in
an attempt to:

       (1) Learn what our members are currently doing for our Church,
       (2) Determine the talents that are available to our Church within our congregation,
       (3) Solicit assistance from our members for current and future activities and missions of our Church,
       (4) Offer members the opportunity to request additional information on current and future Church
           activities and missions, and
       (5) Provide members the opportunity to offer comments on current Church activities or missions and
           suggest possible activities and missions for our Church in the future.

We are collecting this information through the attached questionnaire. Please take a moment to complete the
questionnaire. The information you supply will be used to accomplish the goals stated above as well as other
missions. The information you provide will not be shared outside of our Church without your consent.

The information collected through this questionnaire will assist the Stewardship Committee and our Church in
making the most effective and efficient use of the time, talents and treasures that God has bestowed upon our
blessed congregation. Thank you for helping us with this important mission.

                                           God Bless,

                                           Stewardship Committee
