FUTURE EVENTS IN OUR PARISH:                         

Jan.  26           Vestry Meeting, CTK Parish House, 9:30 A.M.

A FEW ITEMS FROM YOUR SENIOR WARDEN:

1. Please send any comments, suggestions or thoughts about the trialogue to the church office or to me: tgraul@sbcglobal.net

2. There are many ways we can serve our parish, a few of which are on the sign-up sheets at the back of each church.  Consider being a lay reader, providing flowers for the altar, or joining the altar guild.  It’s a rewarding way to start the new year.

3. Our parish still needs a treasurer.  Katie LaViolette had to resign because of the unexpected demands of her day job.  The treasurer -the fiscal authority person for the parish – is a required position.  Our very competent administrative assistant does the day to day work: paying the bills, writing the checks, keeping the books and preparing all the reports for the vestry meetings, so the elected treasurer has a primarily supervisory role.

STEWARDSHIP-BUDGET NEWS:

Great news!  This year’s stewardship campaign results are in, and we have surpassed the goal for pledge income!  The 2023 budget is now more realistic than it has been in recent years, and your church can plan for the future with confidence.  Thanks to everyone who responded so positively.

CAP PANTRY UPDATE AND REQUESTS:

Last week Fr. Olin shopped, buying some of the items that were requested last week. Here are current needs: soups and crackers, Helpers or rice mixes to extend hamburger, chicken and tuna. Please save egg cartons as some egg donations have been received. Thank you!           

TOYS FOR KIDS 2023:

Thanks to all who donated to Toys for Kids during the holiday season. Our parish raised $500 toward a brighter Christmas for Door County children.

WINTER WORSHIP CANCELLATION:

When winter weather makes worship questionable, the Wardens and the Vicar will make a decision about canceling worship, hopefully early in the process.

If worship is to be cancelled, you will receive the message by e-blast. If there are any questions about whether or not we are having worship, please feel free to call the Vicar.

FORWARD DAY BY DAY BOOKLETS:

Booklets for February/March/April 2023 are available at each church and in the plastic bin outside the church office.
