The vestry of Emmanuel Church is the lay governing board of the congregation. Members are elected annually for three year terms and the next vestry election will be at Emmanuel's annual meeting on Sunday, May 7th. This year the vestry will have as their responsibility electing the new rector of Emmanuel. Members meet monthly on the third Wednesday of the month and oversee the finances, program, ministry and building work of the parish. If you are interested in standing for election or would like to know more about this ministry please talk to one of the members of the vestry nominating committee: Fitz Hoskins, senior warden; Liz Shaner, junior warden and Jack Carroll, vestry member, or one of the clergy.
