Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
What an exciting Annual Meeting we had. We heard about all of our ministries and how we minister to those out in the world. We recognized 23 People of God who have officially joined All Saints in the past year. We recognized outgoing Vestry members: Sharon Tatlock, Calvin Boyd, David Outsen, & Claudette Forbes...Thank you for your service. We elected four new Vestry members: John Still, John Woodward, Phill Wertz and Adam Nygren...we thank you for offering yourselves to the service of All Saints. We elected a new Sr. Warden: Allison Wells and a new Jr. Warden George Sowersby and we thank you for your giving of yourselves in leadership roles this year.
We also began our "Burn the Note-Re-imagining our Future" Campaign to eliminate our debt by the end of 2015. I am happy to report that we are already half the way there with over $20,350 in pledges toward the goal of $40,000. I'm sure there are many parishioners who want to give to this effort so please fill out a pledge card and place in the offering plate, pledge cards will be in the bulletin over the next weeks.
We have much here at All Saints and with that we have been given great responsibility. The world needs what we have built here and we must freely give it away.
In closing In want to thank all of you for your generosity of spirit, love, and kindness during this past year and Chris & I look forward to celebrating many more years with you.
Blessings & Peace
