Survey Results - Church Services
Thank you for filling out the recent survey regarding plans for future in-person church services. Your feedback has been received and has been very helpful. As the Board of Trustees and Staff continue to prepare and pray for God's direction for our specific congregational needs, please stay tuned for announcements about what different phases of reopening will look like. Until then, please be prepared to view services online for Sunday, June 7. Thank you for patiently walking this journey with us.
