We are taking seriously our call to Grow More Christlike Together.
To that end we are asking you to take the online Readiness 360 Survey, starting today through Sunday, November 17.
​We encourage you to take this opportunity to assess where our church is now and how we may cultivate new ministries for present and future congregants. Your insights inform our leadership in discerning how our church is growing in spiritual intensity, dynamic relationships, cultural openness, and missional alignment.

Set aside 20 minutes to take the survey between now and Sunday, November 17. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Jeri Okamoto Tanaka, Stan Shimotsu, Rev. Gary Oba or Rev. Janet Cromwell.
