Worship Services Feedback Survey
Over the past few months (from Sept. 5-Nov. 14, 2021), SDFC has been conducting a worship services "experiment", characterized primarily by the shift to hosting two distinct worship services (Classic & Contemporary) at the same time, 10:30am.

We hope you will be willing to provide feedback about your experiences engaging with the life of the church for the duration of this experiment, which will assist your church board & staff in making plans for 2022 and beyond. Thank you!
