Questions for a Church

Dear People of God at St. Anne’s,
 
Representatives of our Diocese will visit with the Vestry to ask how our mission initiative is going and where God may be calling us from here.  They sent these questions ahead to help guide the discussion.  Will you please pray with me about these?

More about this on Sunday.  Questions and comments welcome.

Thanks,

 

 Fr. Bob +
