Next Steps (February 2023)

We have been active over the past year providing opportunities to hear guest speakers, participate in diversity training, engage in bible study, have a pulpit exchange with MCC, provide resources,  and talk with another local congregation that has been through the affirming process.  We want to continue in our journey to being a welcoming and safe space for all.  We are now welcoming members to participate in a survey about our next steps and always to have the opportunity for discussion with our Minister or the co-chairs of our Affirming committee.  The survey is available at the church.
