To help it plan programming for families, the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is asking parents to complete an online survey about experiences in their Latvian Lutheran congregations, Latvian schools and homes.
The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. It will be available until Oct. 1, said Astrīda Kaugars, director of the survey project titled “Come, Join Our Family Faith Journey” (Dosimies ģimenes ticības ceļā!).
“Our congregations and Latvian schools have consistently worked to help establish a strong faith foundation for our children and youth,” Kaugars said. “As times have changed, we must seek to more effectively communicate and involve each child and family.”
Once survey results are compiled, a planning committee will review them and plan programming that will be implemented in local and nationwide venues, Kaugars explained.
The survey is available in English or Latvian. Survey results will be anonymous, but as an incentive participants may be entered into a drawing for a cash prize.
Funding for the project has been provided by the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation.
