To St. John's Parishioners and Friends -
From the Deacon:
On Sunday night your vestry met, and among other topics, they began discussing the Annual Meeting to be held February 12. One of the major concerns was finding nominees for vestry positions that will open next month. Vestry members serve for three years and then must take at least one year off. We have several members who have fulfilled their terms, so there are some new opportunities to join the vestry. (The voting/selection will occur at the Annual Meeting.) If you heard my sermon last Sunday about using your God- given talents, skills, and abilities, please offer yourself to serve on the Vestry. The Vestry makes critical decisions about the budget, operation, and maintenance of the church: and this year, in collaboration with the Bishop, will make the final decision on our new priest in charge. Please pray to God to hear if God is calling you to serve on St. John’s Vestry.
