St Benedict held a congregational conversation on Friday July 17, 2015, to explore the direction our ministry will go in the future. We are looking at different ministry models that other churches of our size and financial status are using to help do ministry in vital ways.

Your Willapa region

Items voted on: 1) We were asked to review SBC’s policy on alcohol to see if greater flexibility was possible. Determined No Change. 2) We shared congregation members’ opinions about going to a single service July-Aug. Only one negative response was reported. Determined that “Yes” we would go to a single 9:30 service, beginning July 5, with one Sunday in the month having no music. 3) Voted to discontinue Quarterly Quarters since its original purpose was no longer the case.

During General Convention, several dozen Episcopalians from around the country and world squeezed into a hotel breakout room to have a deeply personal reflective conversation about racism. At an event organized by the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society, participants were asked to reflect on their own experiences with racism and how they could help overcome it in their communities.
There's a lot going on at St. Benedict. We'd love to hear your thoughts.
