From now until March 26, our Strategic Planning team is offering two tools to solicit opinions, wants and dreams from our congregation.  Your responses will help the team, Session and staff develop the plan we'll follow through 2020. One tool is the Congregational Assessment Tool (CAT), the same survey used to build our previous plan. The survey must be completed in one sitting and takes as little as 20 minutes. People who share an email address can each input an individual CATscan. Paper copies are also available in the church office. The more of us who complete the CAT, the more accurate our plan will be in reflecting the will of the congregation. 
On Monday, March 27 our speaker will be Beth Waltemath, presenting a special Lenten program. Members and friends are invited for dinner and fellowship at 6:30 p.m. at the home of Sanda Means, 1071 McLynn Avenue 30306. RSVP to Sarah Brownlee
