At the vestry’s March 30, 2017 meeting:
The Rev. Kate Heichler and Elizabeth Vaden provided an annual program update for worship. Kate and Elizabeth solicited the vestry’s feedback regarding factors that make worship at St. Columba’s valuable and distinctive, ideas for the future of worship at St. Columba’s, and ways to make worship a point for entry, engagement, and outreach.
Treasurer Bob Broeksmit provided the vestry with an update regarding the church’s year-to-date financials, reporting that the church remains on track to meet its budget for the current fiscal year.
Rev. Ledlie Laughlin and COO Paul Barkett reported that the annual stewardship campaign has come within about $10,000 of reaching its $2.2 million goal.
Ledlie discussed the forthcoming vestry retreat, noting that he will ask the vestry to begin consideration of a vision for the future of St. Columba’s and its mission. At the retreat, the vestry will also consider whether the three priorities it identified at least year’s retreat (community engagement, stewardship, outreach) should be adjusted.
Ledlie reported that he created an ad hoc “vision team.” The team, composed of the wardens and several non-vestry members, will work with Ledlie to provide language for articulating a vision for the parish, an effort that will be made in conjunction with the vestry and clergy.
The vestry endorsed Serena Wille Sides for ordination to the priesthood, and Cindy Dopp and Julie Petersmeyer for ordination to the diaconate.
Charles Molluzzo, secretary of the vestry
