MESSAGE FROM NOMINATING COMMITTEE CHAIR: St. Andrew’s Annual Congregational Meeting will be held Sunday, January 28 following worship. During this meeting, we discuss the Financial Plan for the coming year, as well as other pertinent information regarding looking forward at St. Andrew’s. Please plan on attending.
The Session would like to thank Judy Bernethy and Debbie Therriault for their commitment to St. Andrew’s, especially while serving as Elders to the Class of 2017. A warm welcome is extended to Gary Keinath and Wanda Smithingell, coming on board to serve as the Class of 2020. Thank you all for answering God’s call.
Each year, a St. Andrew’s Nominating Committee is elected during the Annual Congregational Meeting. Early in 2017, the congregation nominated members Sarah Brown, Candi Keinath, and Jean Shannon to join Sitting Elders Julianne Princinsky and myself as representatives for the Nominating Committee. When this group was formed, we were unaware that there would be an additional duty for the year, that of bringing to the congregation a Pastor Nominating Committee. It was my great pleasure to work with these women, all driven by their devotion to the Lord and St. Andrew’s. I am very thankful and appreciative of the time, commitment, and true sense of God’s leading spirit that this group brought forth with their duties this year. Thank you so very much. You are wonderful women of God.
