Welcome!

As the Church Board it is our job to help lead the church in the right direction and make sure that we're doing so in the most Christ-like way possible.That means ensuring that we as a church are focusing our time, energy and resources on the right things as we pursue our vision and ministry.

To do that, we need to hear from you. We want to hear from you about how we're doing and where some work needs to take place.

For Statements 1-9 we have included the mandate for each team, please read the statement and indicate on the bar your response. If you are unsure please leave the question blank.
For Question 10, please offer your own feedback.

Please take 5-10 minutes, fill this out, and help us out so we can be better together.

Once the information is collected, we will go over it and share with you what we heard and what we think should happen next.
Thank you for your time and thoughts. It makes a big difference to us and to the church.
Any questions can be sent to the church office, Pastor Nick, or to the Church Board.

Grace and peace everyone!
