*Feedback Needed – Thanks to all who have offered feedback. We’d like to hear from others as well. We are working on our plans for the fall and would like to know if being able to watch the service livestreamed is important to you or are you happy watching the recorded services whenever it works for you? Also, is it helpful to have the bulletin and hymn words and music posted at the website? Do you refer to those? Do you prefer to follow the hymn words or the hymn music and words? This information will help us in our planning for the fall. Please send your comments to Barb.
