TRC CHURCH SURVEY
By God’s grace, TRC has been growing! In order to stay up to date with the demographical changes of our congregation, and subsequently our growing needs, we’ve designed a survey. Please help us out by filling out the survey, so we can minister and be on mission together! The deadline for filling out the survey is 3/16.
