Church Use/Calendar Request Form
As our church schedule and level of activity begins to pick up, we want to ask that you please complete a Church Use/Calendar Request Form when you schedule or plan an event or activity for the church calendar.  This will help in knowing who will be in the building and what is going on in the church. It will also help to avoid any scheduling mishaps/misunderstandings or conflicts.  The forms can be found outside the church office or a form can be emailed to you.

Pew Registration Pads
Please remember as you come back to worship each week to be sure to sign your name on the pew registration pad found at the end of your pew.  Please fill in all information especially if you have had a recent change in address, phone number/email.  Also, assist any visitor in your row with completing the registration process.  This will help us in tracking our attendance, visitors and guests each week.

Church Pictorial Directory
We have sent the directory back and are waiting its return ready for distribution. There were several more mistakes than we had originally realized and a few things we needed to change due to staffing changes and picture issues.  Please be patient as we await its arrival back ready for distribution.

If you had a picture taken, you will receive a free book when they arrive.
