Rector Search Committee Update  

Small Group Meetings
Continue this Sunday, 11/19/17

As you know the next next step in the search process is the small groups. It is vitally important that everyone sign up to participate in one of these groups. The groups will be limited to six participants and a facilitator and scribe from the search committee. The small groups will last no more than 90 minutes.

The meeting schedule is:
11/14     TBA      OakCrest
11/14    6:00 PM Parish Hall
11/19    9:00 AM Parish Hall
11/19  12:00 PM St. Timothy Center

If we need more sessions they will be scheduled.
It is very, very important that you sign up as soon as possible by email to Lori Judkins at Please do not wait to do this. If you try to register in a group that is filled Lori will let you know where there are slots available. Starting next Sunday there will also be sign up sheets in the parish Hall.

Now we need to maintain the momentum that we have established. We have made a wonderful start. Now we need to keep up the excellent work.
