During the annual meeting, we will vote on three fairly important items for our parish: new members of the vestry, delegates to diocesan convention, and the annual budget. With a new budget format, it will be important for us to have the time to explore the proposed budget and to seek clarity as we consider the year ahead of us.
To that end, we are hosting a forum during the formation hour to explore the proposed budget and to accept floor nominations for vestry and diocesan convention.
Candidate Forum – 9:15am
The Candidate Forum is the place to make floor nominations for either vestry or diocesan convention. In order to nominate someone from the floor, the person being nominated must be present to accept the nomination and must be willing to respond to the question, “How do you feel called into this particular ministry at this time?”
Budget Review Forum – 9:30am
This year, we are releasing a new budget format for the parish. The draft budget will be delivered electronically to parishioners prior to the annual meeting. During the budget forum, we will host a conversation about the new budget format and what our parish is putting its financial resources towards in the coming year.
