So continue encouraging each other and building each other up, just like you are doing already.

The Annual Parish Meeting took place last Sunday at 9am. It was good to see so many members participate. Thank you for coming to take part in this important gathering and listening as we consider our common life. Whether you were present or not, the annual meeting booklet remains an important resource for us. Copies of the booklet will remain available at the church.
One thing to highlight in the reports is Dabney Dwyer's retirement as Outbound Director at the end of March. I intended to touch upon this in my report as well. Dabney has been such an integral part of our Outbound programs. We will do more to recognize her and the other Outbound ministry leaders on Sunday, March 24th during the 10:15 service. Mother Marci will offer staff oversight and leadership in Outbound as Dabney retires. They have been working together over the past year in anticipation of this transition.
The vestry held a short meeting following worship this past Sunday. Together we elected Jane Burruss to continue to serve as Treasurer and Harry Breda to continue in his role as clerk. We elected Todd Rutenbar to serve as Junior Warden. I also shared that Jane Taber will serve as our Senior Warden. We are blessed with many talented and dedicated leaders in our vestry, our staff and our committee chairs. I hope we will continue to connect members to our ministries and help them share in this leadership.
