Vestry

The Vestry is the “Board of Directors” of the church. The Vestry operates under the Constitution and Canons (bylaws) of the Episcopal Church and the Constitution and Canons of the Diocese of Virginia. The responsibility of the Vestry is to support the rector and to transact all church business, including oversight of the church personnel, facilities and finances. 

The Vestry meets monthly; all meetings are open to any member of the parish. Vestry members act as liaisons to Emmanuel ministries such as outreach, education, fianance, stewardship, and the Emmanuel Preschool. Every Sunday at the end of the 10:30 a.m. service, a Vestry member greets parishioners and welcomes visitors.

Church members elect members of the Vestry at the Annual Meeting. Vestry members serve a three-year term. Any adult who has been a pledging member of Emmanuel for one year is eligible to serve.
