3.   If you can, attend church services regularly or at least once a month.

4.   Attend one of the Cell Group Bible Studies on Zoom weekly.

5.   Communicate with the church every now and then so that we know that you are still with us.

Everyone has been sent an invitation to log on Servant keeper to be able to update their individual/family information, see their contributions records and upload photographs to their profile.
