October’s All Parish Dinner was a heartwarming event. We laughed at Fr. Seger’s “income story,” Fr. Gray reminded us about how God blesses us with all things, and we enjoyed Chef Walker’s blessed feast. It was a night to remember. I’m sad some of you could not attend, but you were in our thoughts and prayers.
Several of you have asked about progress with our budgeting process for 2016. A Finance Committee, consisting of parishioners Anita Countryman and Herb Larrabee, Vestry members Suzanne Gregory, Jon Gordon, and Doug Francis, and our business manager, Cindy Hannon met twice to make their recommendations which would then be forwarded to the Executive Committee of the Vestry, and then on to the Vestry for approval. We should have an approved budget by December 15, which would be communicated to the parish at the Annual Meeting in January.
I must tell you that I look forward to worship on Sundays, because I can feel God’s presence and the prevailing joy and peace of the Lord in our family. Thank you for the time, talent, and gifts you bring to this wonderful church.
May God Bless you,
Doug Francis, Sr. Warden
