History:  In 2017, acting on energy generated by the Mission Assessment Process, the Christian Education and Worship & Music Boards discussed potential changes to programming at American Lutheran.  Through congregational feedback at multiple meetings, a review of declining attendance at the 11:00 worship service, and conversations with and visits to other churches, Wednesday evening programming was developed on an experimental basis.  Christian Education for children on Sunday mornings was moved to Wednesday evening.   Sunday morning worship services were consolidated to 9:00 and a Wednesday evening worship service was developed.  A Wednesday evening supper was added.

It is now time to review these changes.  How is it going?  Tell us about yourself:

* 5. If you are interested in a Bible or book study, which time would you prefer?

* 7. Would you be interested in church-led activities for children and families during the summer?

* 8. If Christian Education needs help, may we contact you?
