Vestry Nominations

All,

On Sunday, September 24th, we will hold our Annual Meeting right after church. This is a VERY important meeting each year in our church's life, and we encourage all members and regular attenders to be present. We will be discussing several very important topics such as our vision for property and the future, as well as voting on new Vestry Members.

Our Vestry consists of 6 members, plus the Pastor (me!). This year Brian Cerza and Trahey Manor will be rotating off the Vestry, and we will need to elect 2 new Members. The nomination and election of Vestry is something to be carefully considered and prayed over. Below you will find the section of our church's bi-laws that describe the requirements for Vestry. Additionally, eligible candidates must be regular Church of the Outer Banks attenders for a minimum of two years.

When nominating someone for Vestry, we ask that you do so confidentially, and without consulting the nominee. The Vestry vets each nominee, and in order to avoid hurt feelings, the Vestry will only approach those nominees who have been properly vetted and meet the requirements. Once the nominee has been notified, they may accept or reject the nomination. The Vestry will then compile a list of the candidates, and will present this to the congregation for a vote to select the vacant spots.

Should you have questions, please feel free to contact the church office. Please submit nominations via email to office@churchobx.com

Thanks everyone!

Good Friday

Good afternoon everyone. Today is Holy Thursday, the day we remember when Christ celebrated the Passover, instituted the Eucharist, gave us the supreme example of service in washing the Disciples feet, and was betrayed and arrested. It is a time for reflection and prayer, which I hope each of you will have a chance to do!

I also wanted to remind you that the office is open for for prayer tomorrow from 7AM to 7PM for prayer. We will conclude with a short Good Friday Service. I hope to see all of you there!

Peace,

Palm Sunday

We really hope you will join us at Church of the Outer Banks this Palm Sunday! We are thinking very specially about Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem on a donkey, as he heard the crowds shout Hosanna and knew that a few days later he would be taken outside the city and crucified for us. And then...do take time in Holy Week to thank God for this incredible act of sacrificial love.

Drink Water Week

Drink water week!

Just a reminder that last Sunday you were invited to give up drinking coffee and sodas for one week, and to put aside the money to help provide clean water for people who do not have it. Women and children in many parts of the world spend hours each day walking to fetch water from dirty streams and rivers…their only source of water. On Sunday, March 12, we will receive your gifts.  Thank you
