vestry 042919

In the Episcopal Church, the Vestry is the primary lay oversight body of the parish. It has many responsibilities, the greatest of which is praying for the congregation and discerning the path God has in mind for Christ Church. At Christ Church, the Vestry currently consists of twelve people. Several persons are elected by the congregation each year at our annual meeting to serve three-year terms.

Vestry Meeting Minutes can be accessed in Realm by clicking the Christ Church group and then clicking Files.  Please direct any questions to Dutch Bumgardner, Senior Warden, or Debbie Bornholdt, Junior Warden. Contact information for vestry officers can be found in Realm.
