Celebrate 2015 AGM: Call for Stories

2016 ANNUAL CELEBRATION MEETING – February 7th, 2016

 

Time again for our Annual CELEBRATION meeting.  No one said AGMs need to be boring.  We ask you to write a short (300 word maximum) piece about the groups, meetings and endeavors that make up St. Augustine’s church, and share with us the following:

  • What happened in 2015 that you wish to celebrate?
  • Where did you see God in your group?
  • Who in your group needs a hug and a big thank you for what they have done during the year?

Stories should be in to the wardens or church office – staugustinesedm (at) shaw.ca by January 22nd to allow design of our report.
