6:00 - 6:30 p.m.
6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Your vestry invites you to help us as we discern what “missional identity” best fits our parish community at this time in our lives. In the coming weeks, we will invite you into a brief conversation as we survey the parish. We want your voice to be heard in our process so that we can take into account your hopes and desires. The results of our survey will inform the process at our vestry retreat where we are confident that we will arrive at a new mission statement.
