It finally feels like Spring.
Personally, Spring urges me to clean and purge. In the Spring months, I am eager to clean, re-organize and declutter. And yes, I have been puttering away. You can only watch so much TV.
Churches also “Spring” clean, too. Dan Noble, our custodian, has been cleaning our building while we are following the “stay at home” orders. Others have been faithfully going to the building and getting tasks completed so that the church is running and ready for our return.
Part of “cleaning” for a church includes updating contact information for everyone in our community. In January, we passed out half sheets in our worship bulletins, and we are grateful for the ones we got back. It was extremely helpful this past month. But, we are missing many, many people and we also realized we need more info.
So now, we have created an online form for people to complete. You will find it here.
If you filled out a bulletin insert in January, we thank you and ask that you complete the form here, too. We have added more questions that will help us track more information that we need. Please forward the form to anyone you feel is a part of the community of Bay Shore, too. This is not just for members. Our new parish database will include not only members, but non-members who are friends, neighbors, frequent visitors, family members of our own members, past members, and more.
Thank you for your help in our efforts!
Blessings and peace, Pastor Sarah
