I hope this message finds you healthy, happy, and vaccinated. I wanted to send a note to everyone concerning some Covid19 (Coronavirus) updates, church leadership openings, and our annual meeting.
Recently there has been a spike in the infection rates which has put our surrounding counties in the “Red Zone” for increased spread risk. With this, the worship team has recommended, and I have agreed, that for the safety of everyone that we restart the requirement to wear masks at our in person services. The diocese has also issued a statement recommending this processes to happen at all churches within the diocese, if possible. We will have masks available should you forget to bring one with you.
Are you called to serve as a leader in our church? Our congregation invites you to consider this question. We are seeking faithful leaders to help guide our church as we follow God’s call to “Be the Church and Be the Change.” We seek nominees for the following officers:
Vestry: 2 positions open (3-year term).
The vestry position helps in deciding the strategic direction of the church along with furthering our mission statement. We typically meet monthly or online depending on the need.
Deputy: 4 Positions open; 2 alternates
This position is for representation of St John’s at the diocesan annual meeting and the alternate is in case a deputy can’t attend. The diocesan annual meeting is a great place to help make a difference through voting of various measures presented.
I would like to call our annual meeting to happen on Sunday August 15th. Our fabulous volunteer and hardworking treasurer, Jeff Davis, has everything together to report on how St. John’s is doing financially. Also our fabulous and hardworking team leaders have a lot to report on what their teams are doing at St. John’s. So we need to gather to elect new leadership and discuss our current and future positions. Typically we have annual meeting during a “potluck Sunday” but as things are changing rapidly with Covid rates in our area this will be somewhat fluid. I will update once we have a definitive agenda planned.
Have a wonderful week and should you have any questions please let me know.
