A SPECIAL VOTERS' MEETING has been called for Wednesday, August 8, at 8:00 p.m. for the sole purpose of voting whether or not to continue our discussion of a dual parish agreement with Golgotha. If we vote to continue, the two congregations will come together and formulate what the agreement and details for the dual parish will be. This will give us more details and hopefully answer some of our questions. THIS IS NOT A BINDING VOTE. After an agreement has been hashed out, there will be another, binding vote by the voters' assembly to enter into the agreement to form the dual parish. This vote will happen at a later date.

If you would be so kind as to extend an invitation, he will do his best to accommodate your schedule, Mornings, afternoons or evenings. You do not have to prepare anything, just allow him to join you in your home for conversation. Call or text his cell phone to schedule a time at (402)358-0932. Thank you!
