    • Christian Education Meeting Wednesday, July 25,  7 pm
    • Follow-up to the  Reserve Fund Guidelines Update. We value the wisdom that is present in the congregation and so as part of our discernment, we created a short survey that we would like everyone who considers CMF their church home to fill out.  Your response to the survey will provide us with valuable information as we do this work.  The survey can be filled out electronically by clicking on the following link.  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6KQBFPP.  There will also be paper copies available as well as a response box on the back table of the church for those who wish to fill them in manually.  The surveys are completely anonymous.  We ask that everyone take a few minutes and complete the survey by July 24th. Thanks for much for your help with this.
