Please put this on your calendar and plan to attend.
You are encouraged to complete this survey and be a volunteer this year at Myrtle Grove Baptist Church!
            For those who did not receive a copy of the survey last week, additional copies are available at the information table in the main foyer.  Please pick up a copy on the way out today.
            In addition, if you have finished filling out your survey, you may drop it off at the information table at the designated place.  For those volunteering for various positions, you will be contacted over the next few weeks concerning the “greeters” training date and time.   
Note to Parents:  Please accompany your children when they need to leave the sanctuary during a worship service.  This will help to ensure the safety of our children.
