This Sunday, February 4 - 9:00 am Service followed by Annual Meeting
Sunday February 4 is St. George's Annual Meeting, our yearly exercise in church democracy. We elect vestry members and parish delegates and alternates, say farewell to outgoing vestry members, hear about the state of the parish, and receive the Annual Report about ministry and mission efforts during the past year. The current slate of candidates running for vestry includes Karen Horrocks and Mary Rogers running for a second two-year term, and Gene Ferrick and Adele Miller running for their first term. Vestry candidate bios are HERE. Christine Bloecker is running for parish delegate; we are still looking for a candidate for alternate delegate.
