Friends,

We are thrilled to invite you to vestry, this year being held on Zoom, as required by the covid pandemic we've been living with these last months. Permission for Vestry meetings to take place on zoom was granted by the diocese.

To help us all become better acquainted with a different style of meeting, we wanted to provide some orientation to the dates of our meetings, how we will vote on items, and the nominating process.

What will the voting look like?

One of the greatest gifts of this community is how we gather to support one another in our ministries. We look forward to seeing you all on February 14 and 21 for our vestry meetings as we continue to grow our ministry together.
