Held without a Potluck Lunch and Many of our Members
Parish Council and some of the local congregational board members met at the Church of St Paul on March 8, 2021 to meet the requirements of our constitution and the expectations of our denominations for having an annual Parish meeting. This was an unusual meeting as a result of the public health protocols necessary because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Even with sitting far apart from each other, wearing masks, and having limited numbers, there was still a sense of normalcy. Reports were accepted, the budget was approved, correspondence was heard, appointments were made, and prayers were said.
For those who were able to attend, there was the joy of reconnecting in person and the reminder that our two congregations form one parish. In the midst of seriousness and concerns, there was still laughter and a sense of blessing as we walk our faith journey together.
