Thank you to all 8 parishioners who agreed to stand for election to the vestry. We are fortunate at Grace to always have a wonderful slate of candidates from which to make our choice. Elected at the meeting were: Kathie Futrell, George Henderson, Bill Kantola, and Susan Trotter. They will begin their 3 year terms on February 17. Our thanks also to Kathy Gosselin, Christy Wagner, and Ron Evans who will rotate off the vestry at that time.
Beginning tonight (February 5) the meal will be served at 5:30 PM and the program will run from 6:15 until 7:00 PM. The reservation deadline for the meal was Monday at noon but no reservation is needed to attend the program at 6:15. Join us as we begin our process of parish discernment.
