The Annual Congregational Meeting of an Episcopal Church congregation provides a brief moment to gather together and check in on the life and work of our community. We select new members for our Vestry, our “Board of Directors,” and do a quick review of the successes and learnings of the year past. In recent years, Emmanuel’s Annual Meetings have taken about 45 minutes or so, the bulk of that time devoted to your questions about how things are going and general conversation about where God might be leading us.

We will meet after the 10:15 service in the Parish Hall, where we’ll share a pot luck brunch.

The Agenda includes:

  • An Opening Prayer for a Church Meeting (The Book of Common Prayer, p. 818)
  • Notice of the publication of Annual Reports
  • Announcement of Candidates for Vestry:
    • Ken Zukor
    • Pat Balducci
    • Steve Bareford
  • Summary of Vestry Member Requirements: Vestry Member Requirements 2-2023
