Midweek Update: Sunday Services Survey

Dear Fourth Church Family,

One of our highest priorities and greatest delights is to worship the Lord together Sunday after Sunday. Today, I invite you to fill out a brief survey about Sunday services to help us hear from you and know how to serve you as well as possible in the coming months.

Join us tonight for Congregational Prayer at 5:30. The information is below.

Grace and Peace,
