Spanish Fort United Methodist Church Survey
RequiredRequired Question(s)
Our church staff, along with our Covid-19 Task Force, have been working on creating best practices regarding returning to our sanctuary for in-person worship. This group includes several medical professionals and committee leaders in our church.  We are adhering to recommendations put out by our Bishop, as well as local and state health officials.  This group is not only working on plans for WHEN is the best time to return; it is also working on plans for HOW we will return safely.  The intention of this survey is to provide feedback that will be helpful to the group in the development of these plans. We appreciate your time and help as we work together now for plans to gather together in the future!
