A Little Plug For the Annual Meeting

Dear Servants,
This Sunday following our combined service at 9:30 we will have our annual meeting of the parish membership. I apologize to our 8am congregation and promise only to combine for the most important events. This is a legal requirement of our by-laws and our diocesan canons but it is also a wonderful opportunity to come together as a church community to share in all that God is doing in our midst. You may have suffered through other church business meetings, but to quote my friend David Foster, “I’ve never been in a church meeting like we have at Servants!” I promise you will be blessed by what we share.
It seems appropriate that this should also be World Mission Sunday. Archbishop William Temple was quoted long ago as saying, “The Church is the only institution that exists for those who are not yet its members.” By taking the name Servants of Christ, we proclaim our service to our Lord and to those He cares for in the world (John 3:16). Your Vestry continues to work towards organizing Servants in such a way that we can accomplish the most good for those we are called to serve in Gainesville to the ends of the earth.
If at all possible, I urge you to come to church Sunday and then share in our annual meeting. Even if you aren’t yet a member of Servants, you are welcome to listen and share in this important time as part of the body of Christ. Among other items being discussed, we will provide the congregation with an update on our new building plans. See you there.
Onward and Upward,
