Annual Meeting/Potluck Breakfast, Sun, Jan 27: Our Annual Parish Meeting and Potluck Breakfast will be held next Sunday, Jan. 27 between the 9:00 and 11:15 services. In keep with our custom, the nominations committee will present a single slate of candidates to welcome to service on the vestry. Those candidates are: Erik Leaseburg, Luis Medina, Donnie Muennink, and Sarah Stringer. We would also like to thank our outgoing vestry members for all their hard work and dedicated service: Cameron Crum, Olga Fry, Gerald Gregory, and Jorge Lopez-Aguado. This is a wonderful opportunity to fellowship with your fellow parishioners while hearing from our vestry of what took place in 2018, and the goals for 2019. Bring a breakfast casserole or side dish to share, and show your support for the vestry of St. John’s. For more information, contact Dorothy Gregory at 817-675-0812.
