CONGREGATIONAL SURVEY - In conjunction with the Church Council study of Road Map to Renewal we are conducting a congregational survey to be completed by as many as possible in the congregation. Roadmap to Renewal invites the Church to go on a road trip to rediscover the mission and purpose. It invites us to open our minds and hearts to what God is calling your church to be and do. We would like 100% congregational participation as everyone’s ideas are important! The results of the survey will be compiled and discussed at the next Council meeting. Please complete the inserted survey and return it to the church office by Wednesday, June 13th.
COMMUNION - The United Methodist Church has an open communion. All are invited to join in the celebration of God’s love!
