DR. SPRATT’S DISSERTATION PRESENTATION: Several members have expressed an interest in hearing the findings from my dissertation titled “Strategies for Church Growth in the Presbyterian Church (USA) Synod of the Northeast.” In it, I focused on activities and strategies that make churches grow and attract new people. Specifically, I evaluated various contemporary theories for church growth and evangelism and conducted a statistical survey within our own denomination. The survey inquired about the practices that churches in the Northeast of the USA can implement to become attractive for non-believers. On October 18, 2017, I will present the findings from of my dissertation. In order to reach a broad section of the congregation, the same program will be offered twice on October 18th. Join us for a pizza lunch from 12:00 noon until 1:00 pm or for dessert from 6:30 pm -7:15 pm. Please contact the church office to make your reservation so we’ll be sure to have enough food for everyone.
