PARISH NOTES

 

The Annual Meeting of St. Michael’s Parish will be held today, January 21, following the 10:00 a.m. service.  We will elect three members for the Bishop’s Committee for three year terms, a Junior Warden for a two- year term, a Treasurer, and Clerk for one year terms, and conduct all other such business as may come before the meeting. A budget for 2018 adopted by the Bishop’s Committee on January 14 will be presented and a potluck lunch will be served.

The Bishop Search Committee encourages each church in the diocese to select a delegation to send to an upcoming Focus Group Forum held during January at various locations within the diocese. It is recommended that the delegation consist of 2 members of the vestry, 2 persons from the parish membership that represent ethnically/racially diverse backgrounds, and 2 youth group members (between the ages of 16-18).

These Focus Group Forums will help the Bishop Search Committee have a clearer understanding of what qualities the Committee should be looking for as applications are received. The input received will be invaluable to the process of selecting candidates for further consideration.

 Focus Groups will be held at the following two locations:

1/25 from 6:30-8:30 PM - Trinity Church, 425 E. Spring St., Kingman

1/27 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM - Church of the Epiphany, 423 N. Beaver St., Flagstaff 

 

The Women of St. Michael’s will hold their quarterly meeting this coming Saturday (January 27) at 12:30 p.m.  All women are invited.

Prayer List: If you would like someone added to the prayer list, email Cindy Bohnas (krazykitties82@gmail.com) or place a blue Prayer Request form in the black box located in the Narthex.
