Congregational Survey.  Your Board of Trustees will be distributing our Annual Congregational Survey this week.  Please watch for an email with a link to the survey.  You can also find the survey on our church website.  We will have a few paper forms available at the Congregational Life table.  This is a 10-minute task that provides critical information for the Board and church staff.  Please let us know how we are doing by completing the survey before June 1.  Survey results will be shared with the congregation in September.
