If you’re joining us for the first time, we would like to extend a full welcome! Please answer a few questions on our Guest Connection Card. After the service, we have informal discussion in our Virtual Coffee Hour — just stay in the same Zoom session after service ends. During that coffee hour, you can join our Newcomer Welcome breakout room for a quick introduction to the church and answers to your questions.
