5: Thinking Strategically

Let’s see how we did!

Please answer the questions based on the following observations in a “case study” congregation:

All of the program staff (minister, religious educator, music director) are white baby boomers with graduate degrees.
Attendance by people younger than 50 and by families with children is sporadic on Sunday morning.
There are many divorced families with children who only attend every other Sunday.
There is a Monday night playgroup held in the church that attracts many families.
Once their children graduate, most parents drift away from the congregation.
According to the Church of the Larger Fellowship, there are 40 local UUs under 40 that are within driving distance of the congregation, but are CLF members.
