L3 (Loving, Learning, & Leading)
At Strahan and Malvern, small groups of members are going thru the process of “Loving, Learning, and Leading” (aka L3) which is focused on adapting the church to current times. We are hoping to reach a real understanding of expectations for people who attend church. This long-involved process will be rolled out to both congregations in the fall of 2020.
