Sunday, January 26th – immediately following worship service. See details below…
TRANSPARENCY ON FINANCES
In our desire to be good stewards of the gifts that have been pledged by our parishioners and to offer transparency into the church’s finances, we hold an annual meeting to share where we are at, and what the vestry has approved as our budget for the coming year.
WORSHIP SERVICE CHANGES
Due to the special Annual Meeting event, there will be a single-combined worship service at 10:30 am in the main sanctuary of the church.
The Annual Meeting will begin at the end of service and continue over in Cowans Hall after a brief intermission to dish up at the lunch buffet.
Please mark your calendars!
LUNCH IS ON!
Parish Event Planners (fondly known as PEP) will be serving deli-style sandwiches.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS: Plates, breads, sandwich fixings, and side dishes will be offered at the buffet table. As you enter, please take a plate, make your selections quickly and find a place to sit before assembling your sandwich.
Condiments will be provided on each of the tables along with the napkins and utensils. The meeting will continue in Cowans Hall after everyone has been seated.
During this time, the church financials will be presented and reviewed, most importantly the Annual Report for 2019 and the Budget for 2020.
YOUR PRESENCE IS REQUESTED
All parishioners are encouraged to attend this once-a-year gathering of the full membership to review these important fiscal reports, to meet the new vestry nominees, and along with the rest of the congregation, to participate in the ongoing life and mission of St. Thomas church. So, please join us!
To gain a greater appreciation of the vestry nominees, please check out their bios in the latest edition of St. Thomas’ Beyond a Doubt monthly newsletter.
COMMISSIONS & COMMITTEES
All materials for the Annual Report should be submitted to the parish office as soon as possible, and no later than January 17th.
Please bring your offerings to Cowans Hall prior to the meeting so we can stay on track so we can be good stewards of our time together!
