Please make a special effort to join the whole congregation for our Annual Meeting. A quorum of 50 people is required. On this day we will have ONE 10:00am Sunday morning service (which can also be watched independently at a time convenient for you, as usual). Afterward, we will meet for our Annual Meeting, at which we will reflect spiritually about the previous year, elect new vestry members, review the budget for the coming year, and engage in joy and celebrating as a community. There will be no Sunday school. Every year we elect new members to the vestry – our church’s governing body or board of directors – to replace members whose terms are expiring. Serving on vestry is an important way to give back to our community by providing leadership after engaging in other aspects of St. John’s community life.

Senior Warden Stacy Walters, Mark Halley, Rachel Harrison, and Ginny Jacobson (Clerk).
