Christ Episcopal Church “Breaking News” (as they say on TV)
Father Riley plans to be back with us for 9am Lenten class in the Parish house and 10am service this Sunday, March 4, 2018.
On February 11, 2018 CEC held its annual meeting. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner with tables beautifully decorated in Mardi Gras décor arranged by Jane Barnett. The congregation approved a 2018 operational budget and approved the following members for the 2018 vestry: Jane Barnett, Sam Corson, Cecil Evans, Margaret Godfrey and Allein Watson. Faye Corson will serve again as Secretary of the Vestry and Brenda Funderburg will continue as our Treasurer. We thank Lamar Barnett for his service as Senior Warden for 2015 – 2017. We hope and encourage other members to offer their time and talents by serving on the vestry in the future.
In a called vestry meeting on February 18, 2018 the vestry elected Sam Corson as Senior Warden and Margaret Godfrey as Junior Warden for 2018.
The Operational 2018 budget is a minimal budget for usual operations, salary, travel; etc. We have long term projects we are planning for the near future that are not included in the 2018 Operational budget. Future projects include (but, may not be limited to): Painting the church and parish house and adding a ramp or lift for access into the church.
Vestry meetings are expected to be held monthly on the 3rd Monday of each month at 4:30pm in our parish house. Our first scheduled monthly vestry meeting will be March 19.
The vestry looks forward to serving CEC in a busy year. We have a lot of work to do.
From St. Jude: “Mercy, peace, and love be yours in abundance”
Sam Corson, Senior Warden CEC
