This Sunday, December 4, at 2:00pm we will hold our annual Church Conference. Everyone is welcome to attend and all church members are able to vote.
It’s appropriate for the conference to happen during Advent. Advent is a season of preparation for Christ; at the church conference we will glance backwards but mostly look forward in anticipation of the year to come. We will prepare for 2017 by approving the budget and lay leadership. We will prepare for 2018 and beyond by hearing reports on what the Study Team heard from you in focus groups and surveys and plans for one final capital campaign to completely pay off our debt. We will celebrate those who have joined St. Paul’s over the last twelve months and anticipate others who will come to be with us as we continue serving God.
I hope you will consider attending the conference, maybe even as a way of celebrating the season of Advent. Christ is coming, and indeed Christ is with us.
