2020 Vestry Nominations
On March 15, 2020 Immanuel Anglican Church will have its Annual Business Meeting. At this time, we will be voting for three (3) new vestry members to serve 3-year terms. If you are considering running for the vestry, or would like more information on eligibility requirements, duties, and responsibilities, please meet with the nominating committee after worship today near the stage. The committee will answer your questions distribute information and nominating forms. If you are unable to meet with the committee today, there will be a second meeting after worship next Sunday. All nominations must be returned by February 23, 2020. You can email any questions or concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Nomination forms are available by contacting the Parish Administrator at email@example.com 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.
