Sunday, June 3 is "Survey Sunday"

Here at St John's we have used a tool known as "Natural Church Development" to assist us in growing towards and maintaining excellence in our ministries. Part of the NCD process is an annual survey. Please plan to be in worship on Sunday, June 3 and to stay for a few moments following the service to complete the survey. It is very helpful to have your feedback as we grow together.
