Anytime you hear or see something going on that you might find interesting, please know we want you to get involved. Some parishes have a culture that says, “wait until you’ve been around a while, (or someone has died) before you can participate.” But ODEC is the opposite. You will make it your home, make new friends, and find God’s calling on your life by jumping into something. And when it is time to switch to something new, do so.
This year we will have monthly newsletter articles for Stewardship to help you get a look at some of what goes on. Each commission will describe some of their ministry efforts. If you see something you find interesting, join in. If there is something you think is missing, speak up and it is likely that there are others who would like to start it with you.
In this year with lots of new developments, we hope you will find ways to “Pray, Love, and Act” and in doing so, you will grow more deeply and faithfully into who God has created you to be. As that happens, we will all be growing closer and stronger and together; and God’s kingdom will be blessed.
Peace and blessings,
Sharon Paine — Senior Warden
Bob Randall+ — Rector
