The Senior Pastor Call Committee is completing the Ministry Site Profile, which is a way for the congregation to give us input on the direction of LCR in the future. This information also enables us to present ourselves to prospective candidates. There are a number of ways to take part in this important process – paper survey, online via the website, or by using the tablets available during & between services in the Gathering Space. The survey will be available in all formats from Sunday 8/25/19 through Friday 9/6/19. There is a dropbox in the Gathering Space to return paper surveys. Thank you for taking part, your thoughts & ideas are very valuable. Please continue to pray for our committee as well as our congregation through this transition period.
