The First Sunday of Easter
Holy Baptism

Join us this Sunday for the baptism of Lydia Anderson and Charlotte Kindle. We pray for these children and their parents, Robert and Beth Anderson and Chris and Theresa Kindle, as they prepare for their daughters' baptisms.
Children's and Youth Formation

There will be no Children's Formation or Youth Formation this Sunday as many of our families and formation teachers are away for spring break.
Notes from the Search Committee

The Search Committee accomplishes its work through a process of prayer and discernment rather than following a defined schedule of weeks and months. For those unfamiliar with the search process, we do understand this may be frustrating, so we will continue to provide updates about our work.

Our vital work of gathering and processing information is almost complete. We anticipate finalizing the materials that will be used to call our new rector by the end of May. This will be followed by several months when we will receive candidate resumes and profiles. By the end of the summer we expect to enter the phase of background checks and candidate reviews. Our prayerful hope is to be presenting a candidate to the Vestry around the end of 2018 or the beginning of 2019. With God’s grace, spring 2019 should be a joyous time! Please watch for future updates in The Weekly News. 

If you have questions, please direct them to our Search Committee Chair, Drew Bender:
