Strategic Mission and Renewal Team (SMaRT) BUILDING RENEWAL FOCUS GROUPS

On March 5 we will begin a series of focus group meetings about the second phase of our building renovation project. The first phase, roof replacement and other external restoration work, is under way, and the second phase will focus on internal renovations and improvements. The purpose of these meetings is to give every member of the congregation an opportunity to learn about these plans, and to offer your thoughts and suggestions.  All meetings will be held in the Church Parlor.

The dates and times of the meetings are:

Sunday               March 5       9:45am & 12:15pm

Wednesday        March 8       Noon

Sunday               March 12     9:45am & 12:15pm

Wednesday        March 15     8:00 pm

Sunday               March 19     9:45am & 12:15pm

Wednesday        March 22     6:00 pm

Sunday               March 26     9:45am & 12:15pm

Each presentation will last approximately 20 minutes.  You will then have an opportunity to ask questions and to answer a brief, but important, questionnaire before the meeting is concluded.

Christ Lutheran Church is important to all of us and your suggestions are needed to be certain we are fulfilling our responsibilities to our congregation and our faith.
