2020 Vestry Nominations
The Nominating Committee of the Vestry is requesting self-nominations of parishioners to serve on Immanuel’s Vestry. Three parishioners will be elected by the congregation to serve for three-year terms each. Elections will be held during the congregation’s Annual Business Meeting, which will be held on Sunday, March 15, 2020.
The Vestry serves as the lay leadership of the church. Members of the Vestry provide Godly counsel, Biblical wisdom, and accountability for the Rector as well as managing the temporal matters of the church. According to Immanuel’s By-Laws, any person who serves on the Vestry must be a baptized Christian, confirmed or received into the Anglican Communion, at least eighteen years of age, recognized by the Rector as regular in worship with an average attendance of at least twice per month, and regularly contribute financially to the church. Nominees should also be active in some additional aspects of church life. Only one member of an immediate family may serve on the Vestry at a time. Vestry meetings are to be held monthly but more often if necessary.
Please prayerfully consider if you are called to serve on our Vestry. If you feel God’s call and would like more information, please talk with Kathy Westcott, the Chair of the Nominating Committee, at 703-987-5206, or email at email@example.com.
Nomination forms are available by contacting the Parish Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org or on the Web site using the following link: https://www.immanuelanglicanchurch.org/vestry
Completed nomination forms must be received in the office by the close of business on February 23, 2020.
