Bulletin for Sunday, 1/14/18 (10 AM Service)

Here is the bulletin for the Sunday, 1/14/18, 10 AM service.

Are You Called to Serve St. Mary's as a Deanery Delegate?

At our Annual Meeting we will be electing delegates to the deanery. Deanery Delegates represent St. Mary's at the Wingfield Deanery and Diocesan Convention. This is an exciting time to serve as a deanery delegate because this year's deanery delegates will vote for the next Bishop of the Diocese of Northern California. If you have ever wondered how St. Mary's is connected to other churches in our deanery and how our deaneries are connected to the diocese this ministry might be for you. If you have questions or want to learn more, please talk to Vanessa. 

Requirements: have previously served as a deanery delegate or an interest and willingness to learn about and participate in church governance. Attendance at pre-convention Deanery meeting, Diocesan Convention in Redding on November 9-10, 2018, and the Special Electing Convention for a new Bishop on February 9, 2019.
