Gifts and Service Survey
If you didn’t get a chance to fill out the new “Gifts and Service” survey, you can download it here, print it out, check off the areas you are willing to help with, and return it to church by mail or leave it in the office, or in the collection plate. There are so many OPPORTUNITIES and so many NEEDS for our hands to do God’s work! Surely there is some way you can share your talents and serve our church and community.
