The Staff Parish Relations Committee is asking for your input. Every year we fill out an Annual Conference Evaluation and Church Profile report letting the Bishop know how our Congregation feels we, the Congregation and Pastor are fulfilling our Church’s vision and purpose. We want everyone in the Church to give us your opinion on what you feel is important for our congregation and staff to fulfill our Church’s Purpose Statement.
Below is a two-part, number in order of importance, short questionnaire. Please print out the form, fill it out, and put in the offering plate or leave it in the church office. Please return no later than October 14th. If you have other comments, please include them. Thank you. SPRC
