Thank You For Your Survey Responses
We have received 155 responses to our congregational survey!!!  This is an excellent response for the survey and reflects a healthy level of member engagement. The next steps will be for Church Council to review the initial results next week at our monthly meeting. We will then work on a more comprehensive summary and analysis of the results for our May council meeting which will include a version to be shared with the congregation on a later date to be announced in May. Based on the full analysis we will work on plans which may include follow up town-hall meetings.
