Give Us Your Feedback
Parents and Teens, a few weeks ago you received an email with two links to surveys. Looking to gather as much honest feedback and information about our youth ministry as possible. If you could take just a few minutes to fill one of them out this next week it would be a great help to me and our youth ministry as we move forward.
