Installation of Officers & Annual Congregational Mtg.
Sunday, January 28, 2018, 9:30 AM - 2:00 PM
The Session has set the date for the installation/ordination of newly elected officers and the Annual Congregational Meeting for Sunday, January 28, 2018.
We will begin the day with Sunday School at 9:30 a.m., followed by one worship service at 10:30 a.m. In worship on this day, we will ordain and install those officers who were elected into leadership on November 26, 2017. That includes Nancy Orme, Jeff Roberts, Alicia Andrews, Amy Stiles, Diane Whitaker, Rob Wistendahl, and Dan Bourne (elders); Marilyn Binkley, Craig Johnson, Faustina Annan, and Karen Clevenger (deacons). We will celebrate the gifts God has given to all of us for service, and especially to those we have elected to serve as elders, deacons, and trustees.
After worship, we will head to the Fellowship Hall for a true pitch-in luncheon. We are asking for main dishes, side dishes, salads, and desserts! Please sign up on the bulletin board outside the office to indicate what you are willing to bring.
Following lunch, we will hold the annual congregational meeting around the tables. Materials for the meeting will be available no later than Sunday, January 21st. Please pick up packets before the meeting so you might be prepared. We will also make sure the materials are available on the church website.
At the meeting, we will share about what God has done in our midst in the past year at John Knox, and what we are being called to do in the years ahead. We will hear more detailed descriptions regarding our budget for ministry in 2018. This is a great time to learn more, ask questions, and together look ahead to where God is leading us.
Please take the time to be present for this entire day in our church's life. As we move forward in faith together, the only way we can know God's voice is if all of us are willing to be active participants in discerning the Spirit's guidance.
