Vestry

The Vestry is the “Board of Directors” of the Church. The Vestry operates under the Constitution and Canons (bylaws) of the Episcopal Church, the Constitution and Canons of the Diocese of Virginia, and the Bylaws of Emmanuel Episcopal Church.  The responsibility of the Vestry is to steward the Church and to transact all Church business - including the Church's personnel, facilities and finances. 

The Vestry members meet monthly and act as liasons to the ministries of the Church such as outreach, education, fianance, stewardship, preschool, etc. Every Sunday at the end of the 10:30 a.m. service, a Vestry member greets each parishioner and welcomes each visitor with a handshake.

Church members elect the members of the Vestry. Vestry members serve a three-year term. To be eligible to be on the Vestry, one must be a member of the Church (a pledging parishoner) and have been a member of the Church for one year.
