Are You Called to Vestry Service?

11/14/2013

ARE YOU CALLED TO VESTRY SERVICE in 2014? Then our four departing members —Doug John, Brooke Roberts, John von Senden and Senior Warden Connie Kurz — would love to hear from you. 

On January 26th at the parish annual meeting, we again will elect four fellow parishioners to a three-year term. This 12-member group, working with our clergy, makes decisions about the life of this parish, its worship and programs, its staffing and the well-being of the physical plant on behalf of us all. 

The "Class of 2014" will see Immanuel on the Hill through exciting times, as we work with our new Rector — the Rev. Randy Alexander — to imagine an enriched worship life here and at the seminary's new Immanuel Chapel in 2015. 

Serving on Vestry can be a richly rewarding experience. It offers a chance to "go deeper" — to think about worship and issues affecting the church, to connect with new friends in the pews, and to use leadership muscles in God's service in our parish home. Doug, Brooke, John and I are happy to share our experiences and to answer your questions about this commitment of time and talents to God in this beloved place. 

Connie Kurz
