For the past two years, we have been asking our guests to fill out an anonymous feedback card, answering various questions about their experience in visiting First Baptist Church of Rincon.
Here are their answers.
"How did you first hear about our church?"
30% saw the building/sign
Did somebody greet you when you arrived?
Were our people friendly?
11% somewhat friendly
Was the sermon clear and understandable?
2% it was okay
Was the music uplifting and inspiring?
18% it was okay
Did you visit a Sunday School (Bible study) class?
It is normal for most visitors to come because of family and friends, but our church has a much higher number of first-time visitors who see the building and sign than most churches (30%). Our location is a wonderful blessing, as we are on the main highway in our county.
It is encouraging that the overwhelming majority of visitors report a pleasant experience when they come, feeling a friendly welcome and an inspiring worship service.
It is noteworthy that two-thirds do NOT attend Sunday School when they first visit. Instead, they check out the worship service, and then they may decide later to visit a class.
