East Metro Fall Mission Area Gathering
East Metro Mission Area Gathering
Thursday, October 12, 6pm | Zoom
All Episcopalians living and worshipping in the southeast and southwest mission areas are invited and encouraged to attend your fall mission area gathering! Twice-annual mission area gatherings offer us the opportunity to meet our fellow Episcopalians living in our area of the diocese. Mission area gatherings strengthen our familial ties and offer us the opportunity to celebrate the diverse church ecology we are blessed with here in Minnesota. Fall mission area gatherings focus on reviewing the diocesan budget that will be voted on at diocesan Convention. If you'd like to be a part of how we, as a community, faithfully discern the best way to steward the resources God has given us, this is your opportunity to see the budget, ask questions, and offer feedback. Clergy and lay delegates are particularly invited and encouraged to attend.
Four east metro council members will also be elected at this Mission Area Gathering. Council acts as the governing board of convention throughout the year, providing oversight for the organization, assisting in the development and approval of the financial statement of mission and helping to set and align the vision for ECMN.
