Please Close Doors after you to conserve heat in the Church. We ask you to please be mindful of the swing door system. The door will close behind you unless you extend it fully to the open position. If so, please be sure to close it after you. Leaving doors open is wasteful of energy and an extra expense on Church funds. Thank you for your co-operation.
