Update from Your Facilities Planning Team
Thank you to everyone who filled out a survey giving us feedback as to your preferences for Memorial Church building facility projects that are the most important to you. We received 41 responses with many good ideas. The two projects described as the most important by more than 50% of respondents were: handicapped bathrooms, and an elevator.

Shortly, the Facilities Planning Team will begin next steps to evaluate where, how, when and how much these two projects might cost. Keep your eyes and ears open-- we will update you again in June!

Living Into Hope
The proof that God raised Jesus 
from the dead is not the empty tomb, 
but the full hearts of his transformed disciples. 
The crowning evidence that he lives is not a vacant grave, 
but a spirit-filled fellowship. 
Not a rolled-away stone, 
but a carried-away church.
