Growth and Vitality Workshop with Bishop Brown
The Vestry would like to make the congregation aware of an important upcoming event. On Saturday, February 8, Bishop Brown will be visiting us to present a Growth and Vitality Workshop. The purpose of the workshop is “to help parishes make the best decisions about their future growth by studying and discussing essential data.”
Basic facts include:
· Studying the nature of growth and vitality
· What are the essential vital signs that every parish should know about themselves?
· What are the vital signs for the Episcopal Church overall?
· What are the models of “being church”?
All are welcome and encouraged to attend. We want to show the Bishop that we are a vital congregation and have important ministries to share with each other and the community.
Saturday, February 8
10:00 am-2:30 pm (with 30 minutes for lunch)
St. James’ Parish House
Lunch will be provided
Please register on the sign-up sheet posted on the notice board in the Parish House lobby, or RSVP at the Soup and Bread Luncheon, or contact the church office at (302) 994-1584 so we can plan accordingly for lunch.
Annual Visitation of the Bishop!
The annual visitation of Bishop Brown is Sunday, March 22, 2020. At that time, he will be the celebrant and preacher! Also, at that time he will Confirm, Receive, or bless Reaffirmations of faith. Simply put, Confirmation is for anyone not previously confirmed by a bishop, Reception is for anyone was confirmed in another Christian denomination who wishes to join the Episcopal Church, and Reaffirmation is for those who wish to reaffirm their baptismal vows before their community of faith. If you are interested in any of these possibilities please speak with Fr. Kim right away.
Save the date!
