CHURCH LIFE
May's Soul Matters Theme:
We Are a People of Curiosity!

Curiosity is a core part of human nature. It can make us happier, more empathetic, and foster great achievements.

Let's discover how
to nurture our curiosity.
Under Consideration:
Having One Sunday Service Year-round!

Moving to one service could afford us many benefits  – like the ability to offer exciting Sunday programming for families or adults before or after the service a reduction of Sunday volunteer time, and a livelier, more unified congregation.

Help inform the decision: complete the survey ASAP!
OR do a paper survey at the Talk to Me Table on Sunday, May 12.
Survey deadline May 13!
