On three successive Sundays, October 18, October 25 and November 1st our two worship services are being combined and celebrated at 9:30 a.m. Immediately following the service a parish wide forum will be held beginning at approximately 10:40 in the Family Room. Each forum is designed to engage in discussion about whether St. George’s-Valley Lee and Church of the Ascension have a future together and what that future together might look like. On October 18, two members of the Discernment Committee (Karol Wolgemuth and Bob Ertter) will briefly describe our journey as an Episcopal Church in Southern Maryland and then enumerate a number of options that our two churches can pursue. On October 25th the entire Discernment Committee will be present to entertain your questions. On November 1st, the Vestry will be present to solicit your hopes, dreams, worries and concerns about the various options. Your presence is strongly encouraged all three Sundays. St. George’s will also be engaging in these discussions on these Sundays in Valley Lee. Our respective Vestries will individually discuss the options and feedback received and discover if we mutually agree on a joint path forward. Such a decision is expected in late 2015 or early 2016.
