Annual Meeting Please mark your calendars for this important event!
The annual meeting of Christ Church will be held Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015, at noon in the Parish Hall. We'll meet to review the year, hear reports from the wardens and officers, elect vestry members and delegates to the Diocesan Convention, and discuss any new business that needs to be brought to the attention of the congregation.
At this meeting we'll elect two vestry members to replace retiring members Betsy Franklin and Michael Oliver. Our long-serving junior warden, Robert Oppermann, is stepping down from the vestry at the annual meeting, with one year left on his vestry term, so we are also seeking a parishioner to serve out Robert's vestry term.
If you are interested in serving on the vestry, please contact one of these members of the nominating committee: Rev. Mariann Babnis, Betsy Franklin, Mike Oliver and Robert Oppermann.
The annual meeting is open to all parishioners. Parishioners 16 and older who are members in good standing can vote on matters requiring a vote at this meeting. As is our custom, the meeting will include a potluck luncheon.
Yoga with Lynn
Two sessions every Thursday!
Gentle yoga on the mat with Lynn begins at 9am every Thursday in the Parish Hall. From 9 to 10 we stretch the body from head to toe. Class ends at 10:30 following a period of meditation/relaxation that will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed and renewed. Anyone, of any age, with or without previous yoga experience, who is comfortable getting up and down from the floor is welcome to join this class.
At 10:45am Thursday mornings, there is a chair exercise/yoga class. It begins with the use of light hand weights (provided) and is also designed to stretch the entire body from head to toe. This class ends with a 15-minute relaxation, all while sitting in a chair.
Both of these classes were created to teach the benefits of mindfully stretching, breathing, and relaxing.
Lynn does not charge for her guidance. There is, however, a donation box, that is absolutely voluntary, that helps the church with air conditioning and heating the hall, and helps Lynn with gas expense.
