Please Take the Congregational Survey

We, as the Hennepin Community, are fully known by God, including our untapped and unrealized potential. We are now going to take the opportunity to look away from the mirror and begin to see ourselves as God knows us to be.

Our first step will be to hear from each other, in the form of a survey. This survey will be

available online. The survey will involve 20 minutes or so of each of our valuable time to complete, and will provide the important first step of understanding how we best grow into the future. Your survey responses will be anonymous, and, if you encounter a question that you do not wish to answer, you are free to skip and move on to the

next one.

We are especially looking to our families to complete this survey. The team has a dashboard that gives a sense of what ages are taking this survey. We would love to see a strong showing from our families. Please click HERE to take the survey.

Questions can be sent to Bill Tipping (
