Notices for Week of 2 May 2021, Easter 5

Notices: 2 May, Easter 5
Dear friends,

This Sunday we will hear the Gospel story of Jesus telling us that he is the Vine and we are the branches. God is the Source of our lives. We grow out of the Life that is God. If we don’t become conscious of this deep connection and reality, we will wither and die. In order to live a full and meaningful life, we are to wake up to and consciously remain in the Love that is God, just as the Love that is God remains in us.

Bishop Sam will be in the Parish on May 12 for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Because of the Covid restrictions, this is an invitation event only. Please keep our confirmands and families in your prayer as they open up to the indwelling Holy Spirit. 

Our annual spring auction will take place on line again this year. Hoping to run it around Mother’s Day. We are looking for donations and gift card donations. You can drop the items off at Church House either on Wednesdays or bring it to liturgy on Sundays. The auction will run for one week so please help make it a success by either donating or bidding during the auction week. If you have any questions, please contact Deanna Spicer 589-5340, or Shelly Drover 680-1471,

Vestry: Because of Covid restrictions we did not have an annual meeting last year (The Annual Report was made available for everyone to see). Our hope is to have an annual meeting this year before the end of October. The Annual Report of 2020 will soon be complete and available. In the meantime, the constitution does allow the Rector to appoint members to vestry for a one year term (an appointment that can be made into the regular 3 year term at the annual meeting). I have recently appointed Joe Skanes, Elizabeth Fry and Harley Follett to the vestry. I have also appointed Deanna Spicer at the Rector’s Warden, and Alfreda Bungay has been elected People’s Warden until the annual meeting. I’d like to thank the outgoing members of vestry, Terry Murphy, Lorne Taylor and Jim Escott, for their ministry on the vestry over the last three years.
