The Wardens’ Report: a brief summary of highlights from monthly Vestry meetings, designed to provide information about our growth, finances, priorities and progress towards our strategic plan.
At our 28 November Vestry meeting, we enjoyed dinner together and prayer before starting the meeting. This month, our rector, David Hanke, led us through our prayer time which included a time of thanksgiving for all the areas God has blessed Restoration over the past year. As we knelt and considered all the staff, volunteers, blessings, events, ministries and efforts of this year, we saw God’s presence and grace spring forth like flowing waters. We welcome your prayers for all that God is doing here on Quincy Street.
We voted to approve a recommendation from RILA to sponsor an individual fleeing violence in her home country and seeking asylum in the US. We received an update from David on the many activities he has engaged in as our pastor, as a leader in the diocese, and as a disciple of Christ over the last month.
The majority of the meeting was spent discussing what we learned over the past year about Church Planting, communications, building disciples at Quincy street, outreach, RILA and where we have opportunities to grow more in our faith, our relationship with God and our family communion at Restoration.
As always, if you have questions, concerns, words of wisdom or encouragement, please know that we are open to your feedback. You can read an archive of past Wardens’ Reports on our website or Vestry Meeting minutes on CCB, under the ‘Files’ tab in the ‘Entire Church Group’
