April Deanery Assembly

Last night we held our April Assembly at St Peter's in Buzzards Bay. Thank you to our hosts for delectable treats and warm hospitality.

A warm welcome to our new delegates from Edgartown and Nantucket - we were delighted to see and hear from you all!

With the help of our online meeting room, we saw and spoke with folks in Provincetown, Chatham, Nantucket, Ohio and Biloxi. Being able to see and hear each other is wonderful. We are thankful for the faith the Congregational Development Grant Committee placed in us through their generous funding of this initiative.

As a Deanery, we have decided to pursue a matching Sending & Serving grant from the Diocese. A planning committee has been formed to organize our ideas and bring some choices back to our September Deanery Assembly for action.

In addition to applying for the matching grant, we will also be applying for a second year of support from the Congregational Development Grant Committee. More on that will be reported at our May Assembly.

Next Assembly is May 29 at Church of the Holy Spirit, Orleans. See you there in person or online!
