St. John:

Your Input is needed for SASJ Budget:  In order to make sure that our budget reflects our mission and priorities as a parish, the Vestry and the Finance and Investment Committee are providing opportunities for any and all to weigh in on the distribution of money among the many ministries of St. Andrew and St. John in 2014.  Individuals and groups representing different ministries are invited to submit written requests and rationale for changes to the budget allotments for their ministries, or for potential new ministries.  These requests are due September 22; on September 29 between services we will offer an open budget forum, at which the FIC will make a brief presentation on the current (2013) budget, and all will be invited to discuss mission and budget priorities for next year.  If you have questions, concerns, or need to see a copy of the 2013 budget for reference, please contact Elizabeth Erickson, Treasurer.
