A Time to Celebrate and Reflect
A Time to Plan and Select Leaders
Hooray! The North Thompson Ecumenical Shared Ministry 2015 Annual Reports are ready. They form the core of how we celebrate and reflect on the life and work of our two congregations and the ESM. Thanks go to all those who wrote reports and prepared the financial statements and to Leslie Stirling who put the report package together and then printed and collated it.
There will be three gatherings:
- The Trinity Shared Ministry congregation will meet on Sunday, January 17th following worship at the home of Joanne and Lorne. A potluck lunch will follow the meeting.
- The Church of St Paul congregation will meet on Sunday, January 24th after the service. The meeting will be at the Church of St Paul following a potluck lunch.
- The third gathering is a new one for our ESM. In the past, only the North Thompson Pastoral Charge Board met to discuss the annual reports and to make plans for the coming year. The NTESM Agreement that was signed September 24, 2015 and is now our primary governance document calls for an Annual Congregational Meeting of the entire NTESM. This year’s meeting will be held at the Church of St Paul on Sunday, February 7th following a potluck lunch after the Church of St Paul’s service. Hopefully, there will be a good turnout from both congregations!
