Each year the Diocese of Olympia holds its annual convention with representatives from all our congregations gathering for beautiful worship, excellent presentations, engaging workshops, and well-run, meaningful business sessions. The highlight is often meeting with members of other congregations and hearing what they are doing. There are also booths all around with representatives from various ministries and organizations of the diocese and the church. We always have a great time, and the work is important.
At our Celebration of Ministries on January 29th, St. Dunstan’s Church will elect two alternate delegates. This is a two-year term. In the first year, you will serve if the primary delegates are unable. In the second year you become the primary delegates.
Serving as a delegate to convention from our congregation is a great way to put your faith into action. We will worship, debate, vote, and enjoy great fellowship as we contribute to the larger church. This year’s convention will be held on October 27 and 28 in Vancouver, Washington. If you would like to consider standing for delegate to convention, please let me or a member of vestry know.
Yours in Christ,
