147th Annual Congregational Meeting


In preparation for our Annual Congregational Meeting, scheduled for 11:15 AM on Sunday, 25 January 2015, you will find here the current draft of the Annual Report and information about our four Candidates for Vestry.

We have two primary agenda items for the meeting: First, we want to have a conversation about the way we select Vestry members from a pool of candidates; Second, we want to update everyone on where we stand implementing the Long Range Plan we completed at the end of 2013.

Please plan to join us following our one service at 10:00 AM.
