Annual Meeting – Jan. 31st

It’s that time of year where we gather together as a community to review the fiscal business of St. Thomas, elect new Vestry members to continue with the important work of overseeing our church, and recognize the contributions of some of our many devoted parishioners.


Sunday, January 31st immediately following the 10:30 AM online service – see instructions for Zoom below.


During the meeting we will vote on three new Vestry nominees to replace those whose terms are ending or to fill open positions. All those nominated have agreed to stand for election, and they are:

Pat Dare 
Breno De Medeiros 
Abby McConnell 


Look for the nominee’s bios in the January 2021 edition of Beyond a Doubt, also available in the most recent Sunday bulletin(s) and included for review in the annual report.

Annual Meeting – Sunday, Jan. 27th


Sunday, January 27th – See details below…


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.


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!


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 2018 and the Budget for 2019.


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.


All materials for the Annual Report should be submitted to the parish office as soon as possible, and no later than January 15th.

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!


If you have any questions or need further assistance, please Contact Us.
