Commission Goals - 2012

Listed below are the top four goals established by the Staff and Vestry for each of the six commissions of our church. Some of these goals are in the process of being completed, having been established in previous years. Things don’t “just happen”; it takes the intentional efforts of many to accomplish tasks. Ask yourself, “How might I best use my God given gifts/talents to help accomplish at least one of these goals?” Please contact me or one of the Vestry members noted for more information.
Thank you. John+
