To foster a sense of Christian Community we want to know each other better. Knowing and calling each other by name is a beginning. Wearing a name tag helps each of us to extend a warm greeting. If you don’t have one or would like a new tag fill out a form in narthex and one will be made for you. We encourage our visitors to wear a stick-on name tag.
