Welcome to a popular section of our website — SCC POLLs — to encourage participation and interaction. Based on research (surveys, questionnaires, interviews, visits to, and conferences on, SCCs) we have identified 1262 important characteristics or features of SCCs around the world: 681 on the dynamics of SCCs and 581 on the activities of SCCs.  The poll uses the statement  — The best part of my Small Christian Community is… — followed by five choices that are taken from these 1262 important characteristics or features of SCCs.  We change the poll every two months. The results of the Sixty Fourth round is listed below and on the SCC Poll Archives page.

We are now in the Sixty Fifth Round that covers January – February, 2020. You can vote as many times as you want, but not more than once in a 24 hour period. Welcome.
