The Board of Trustees will be available on July 14 and July 28 following the service to discuss the 2020 budget. If you have ANY questions or comments about the church budget, please take time to meet with them. This is the time to discuss your feelings on spending, after the budget is competed there will be limited opportunity to make your thoughts known. If you cannot make either of these meetings please contact one of the trustees with your questions or comments.
