LEADERSHIP UPDATE!
On Easter, Allie Hamilton updated the congregation on the ongoing plans for changes coming once our Christian Education Director, Janet French, retires. A survey will be going out to gather insight and feedback regarding potential changes to our Sunday Morning schedule, childcare offerings, and connections classes. Please consider completing this survey once received so you can support and influence the manner in which we love and serve others each week.    The restructure of our Children’s Ministry Program coupled with a refresh of the classroom spaces this summer only emphasizes the importance and need of volunteer support. I urge you to consider how your skills, perspectives, experiences, and passions could support our efforts to love and serve our children each week.   More information will be released in the coming weeks related to specific volunteer and support needs. Please consider the positive impact you could make on the future of our church and the lives of our children. For the full message, click here !
