FUTURE EVENTS IN OUR PARISH:
Jan. 26 Vestry Meeting, CTK Parish House, 9:30 A.M.
A FEW ITEMS FROM YOUR SENIOR WARDEN:
1. We still need a Treasurer! As long as this required position is vacant, the canons of the church say that the Senior Warden is the “Acting Treasurer”. As you might imagine, that makes your Senior Warden pretty busy. Dawn, our very competent administrative assistant, does the day to day work: paying bills, writing checks, keeping the books up to date and preparing reports for the diocese and for vestry meetings. The main jobs of the Treasurer are to verify the weekly receipts, sign checks and reports to the diocese, and present financial reports to the vestry at its monthly meetings. You do not need to run for the office or be elected by the parish; a simple “I’ll do it” will suffice.
2. There are many other 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.
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:
Recently Fr. Olin shopped, buying some of the items that were requested. 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!
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.
TADYCH’S MARKET (FORMERLY ECONOFOODS):
Please continue to save your grocery receipts for our church. Thank you.
