Parochial Report Forms Due Feb. 1

For a church to be seated at Council, 2010 Parochial Reports must be received in the office of the Diocese of West Texas by February 1, 2011.  A packet was mailed around December 15, 2010.

At https://council-dwtx.org/sign-up/parochial-reports/ you can view DWTX Instructions for completing all facets of  the Parochial Report and diocesan required forms.  There is also a complete PDF package of forms sent by mail (44 pages).

Finally, files originally created as documents or Excel files are available in original format allowing completion by computer.

Going, going gone!

Exhibitors: By noon on December 13, the first day to register online, 46 (of 66) booths have been reserved.  Exhibitors are urged to register soon and indicate if you would like to be placed on the waiting list.  There are 15 premium booths and only 5 standard booths still available.

Attendee Registration Opens Thursday

December 16, 2010 is the date.  Our registration process will be very similar to last year, but with a much more user-friendly interface.  A registration letter and instructions from the host committee was mailed to all clergy and churches on December 10, 2010.  Online payment options will include Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit card, Visa and MasterCard DEBIT  cards, and e-checks.  If you wish to pay by check, then print the Registration Receipt, make your check payable to Diocesan Council 2011 and mail both to Saint Stephen’s, Wimberley.

For complete details visit the Registration page.  There you will find an online payment explanation plus paper worksheets for Church and Individual Registration.

Exhibitors, Rise and Shine

Online registration opens at 6:00 am tomorrow (Monday, Dec. 13, 2010).

This year the business sessions, worship, workshops and banquets are just a short walk down a wide corridor from our hotel rooms at the Embassy Suites, Spa and Conference Center. The premium booths will line the two spacious, soaring corridors, and attendees will walk back and forth all day long! As in years past, our standard booths will be showcased in a separate room, Spring Lake, just as attendees enter the corridor. The hospitality area will draw attendees through the room in search of coffee, cookies and all those items displayed in the booths.

Don’t miss the fun, and register early tomorrow to get the perfect location.

Did we mention our host church?

Well we should have!  The Saint Stephen’s letter of invitation to clergy and churches was mailed back on November 8, and it says they feel like Secretariat.  Just a little curious?  A copy of their letter is posted on the Activities page.  Take a minute, it’s a good read.  But if you don’t have time, know you are officially invited to join them at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Spa and Conference Center on I-35 in San Marcos February 17-19, 2011.  Yes Mildred, we said Spa (more details on the Hotel page) not to mention the Tangers and Premium Outlet Malls right next door.  Bring your walking shoes.  Not need to leave the Embassy (except for the malls) as all events are under one roof.
