Sisters and Brothers in our East Coast Conference!  It is a pleasure to encourage you to attend our East Coast Conference Ministerial Association Annual Meeting.  We are delighted to be hosted by Rev. Doug Bixby and his team at Evangelical Covenant Church of Attleboro.  Our Annual Meeting allows us time to learn together, to deepen bonds or friendship, to care for one another and to set priorities for the coming year.  We also look forward to hearing from our Ordination Candidates, worshipping together and making new friends.  As a reminder, please recall this note from our Constitution.  From Article VI, Section 1, "It shall be the duty, as well as the privilege, of EVERY member to attend the Annual Meetings of the Ministerial Association, as well as any special meeting."  {emphasis mine}  If you are unable to attend, you should indicate that in writing to our Ministerial Association Secretary, Rev. Linda Williams, whose email is pretty_full_of_grace@msn.com.  We look forward to seeing you, being with you and worshipping with you.  

 

On behalf of your Executive Committee,

Jim Stanley-Erickson, Chair
