Classes, Events, and Announcements
Annual Meeting: Our meeting will be held on Sunday May 7, 2017. In order to gather all our members, we will hold a united worship service at 9:00 AM. The Annual meeting will follow the service.

The meeting will open with brunch in the Great Hall. If possible, bring a dish to share and your own table settings -- but if that is not convenient, grace us with your company and share our common meal. If you need child care during the meeting, please let us know by calling the office in advance.

Election of our parish officers and the presentation of the Annual Report will follow brunch. Open positions are posted on the bulletin board in the hallway prior to the Annual Meeting, and nominations will be open. 

It is important to exercise our participation in Christ's Church. Please plan to attend.

May's Server Schedule: The proposed schedule for May is posted on the "Thee Bulletin Board" and by clicking here. Please check carefully to see if you have any conflicts and inform the office so changes can be made.
