Home Fellowship Bible Studies Sign-ups
It is time to sign up to participate in the Home Bible Studies. Please stop by the lower gathering space following each of the services to find a group and sign-up. Small groups will begin meeting for the season of Lent and continue during the Easter season. There are several groups scheduled to begin on various days, times and places and hopefully there is one that meets your needs. If not you can start one! The groups will consist of 6-10 people and will meet weekly in hosts homes or other designated meeting places. During the season of Lent we will be studying the Gospel of Luke. Following Easter the groups will read and study the Acts of the Apostles. Sign up today! If you have any questions please contact Alison Cox, Niki Thrash, or Rebecca Couture.
Our Annual meeting was held Feb. 11, 2018. View our annual report here. We also have an updated version of the budget presentation from the annual meeting. Recall that we presented the budget as a work-in-progress since there were still some outstanding accounting items from 2017. The vestry approved the final version in the February meeting, so the 2018 budget is shown on the following pages.
The Stewardship Pledge season has arrived, and with it the opportunity to take stock of the gifts we give and receive throughout our lives. Read our pledge letter, fill out a pledge card, or contact accounting to arrange a recurring bank draw.
