Good News: A Weekly Update from St Thomas Church—January 23, 2014
All is being prepared for the annual meeting of St Thomas’ Church, to take place this coming Sunday, January 26. Reports have been written, submitted and organized into a report booklet. The budget for 2014 has been prepared and approved by the Vestry, and will be available, along with the financial report for 2013.
There will be one service of Holy Eucharist at 10:00 am, followed by a light lunch (thank you, St Thomas Vestry). The meeting will begin at 11:30 in the church, and Child care will be provided by some of our youth in the parish hall. Come and hear and see and share in what God continues to do in this place. Come and join in thanking those who have served on the vestry, and take part in electing those who will serve on the vestry and as our representatives to the diocesan convention and the Watchung convocation for this coming year.
Let us pray:
Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding, be present with those who take counsel in the annual meeting of St Thomas Church for the renewal and mission of your Church. Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right, and grant us both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Peace and blessing,
