Here's that congregational questionnaire

Several days ago I asked if anyone here in TFR had any suggestions for a congregational questionnaire that I was putting together. Well I finished the questionnaire and decided to make it available in case you’d like to do the same (Congregational Questionnaire). Some of the wording is specific to Keltonburg so if you’d like to save time by using this layout, but you obviously need to change the congregation name, you can email me and I’ll send you an editable version of the Word document. Also, keep an eye out for typos because it can be difficult to edit your own paper. If you have tried to do that very often then you know what I’m talking about. Hope you find it useful in some way.

“Bed Too Short and Cover Too Narrow” by Gospel Minutes

I talked to the editors at Gospel Minutes and I received their permission to put up a PDF of the article that I referenced a few days ago written by Clem Thurman called “Bed Too Short and Cover Too Narrow.” I encourage you to check it out if you don’t receive these papers through your congregation. Brother Thurman did an excellent job relating an “obscure” piece of scripture that’s thousands of years old to our modern-day mindset when it comes to finding fulfillment in the wrong places of life. Just click the link below!
