Hope to see you in about 10 days!

Gifts Discernment Survey: You are encouraged to share your God-given abilities to build the church and broader community. Serving others is an important part of belonging. To do that we have a survey for you to fill out. This will be a good tool for the Gifts Discernment committee to use in filling positions for the upcoming year. There is an online version available here or you can pick up a copy at the Welcome Center. Please submit your survey by September 11th. We would like to have everyone that attends to fill one out. Our records need to be updated. Thank you, you are important to us! Contact Debi Ackerman for your questions.
