Annual Meeting Highlights

Messiah’s Annual Meeting, held Monday, January 30, 2017, began with Rector Matthew McCormick reading from the end of the Gospel of Matthew:   “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name  of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.  And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”  Matthew shared his vision of Messiah being biblical, episcopal, and family-focused.

Our financial picture was reviewed and a 2017 budget was passed.  Elections were held:  Jim Olive becomes Deputy Warden; Jessica Bronston, Dick Guiton, Greg Marsh, and Maggie McKnight were all elected to 3-year Vestry terms.  Anne Towner becomes Senior Warden, Gayle Miels becomes Junior Warden.  Denise Deen, John Gappa, Mary Lou Henneman, Dah Soe Morris, Rebecca Everman, Kathy Hoffman, Saw Lu Lu, and Paul Rudd continue with their Vestry service.

With news that our final building mortgage payment has been made, our original promissory note from June, 2005 was burned.  See pictures below of our first mortgage burning about 60 years ago and our second at our Annual Meeting.
