Ministry Retreat: Let's get ministry done! On Saturday, July 27 from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM, we will hold our first annual Ministry Retreat. Our main topic will be ministry: How to get it done, who will do what, when we will implement our ideas, and how we can tell if we are successful. All members and friends of Dearborn Congre-gational Church are urged to attend. We will meet at the church.
Church Surveys: Please remember to turn in the short 1 page church survey you received in the mail or were given in church. The final deadline is this Tuesday, July 9 to turn in completed surveys. Surveys can be left on the desk in the church office or given to Pastor Lew. Note that you don't have to put your name on the survey AND there is room for you to leave a comment on the back. The results of the survey will be used to develop a plan for the church going forward and a vision for vital church ministry. Your input is important. Thank you!
