Your Vestry met in Retreat this past weekend consolidating strategies to deepen parish mission.
Alan Steinbrecher continues as our Senior Warden, and the Vestry is pleased to announce the election of Caroline Seitz as Junior Warden.
We are engaged in further strengthening Youth Ministry and Communications, even as we lean into the resource development necessary to achieve the parish goals to which we have committed ourselves. Every parishioner possesses God-given abilities for use in Christ’s Church, and we ask this Lent that you reflect on your own energies, and how they might be pressed into service for our shared labor.
Strength for the Journey!
