2019 Vestry For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise.Hebrews 10:36
WHAT DOES A VESTRY DO? The dedicated members of the vestry work with the rector to guide the community of St. James' to closer relationships with God. While sometimes vestries are seen as the governing authority of the parish, its decisions go beyond mere policy, affecting not just the structure and finances of the church, but also the spiritual lives of its people. As such, members of the vestry take on a sacred duty to be faithful in worship, listen to God, one another, the members of the parish, and the community and then discern how St. James' is called to use our strengths to be Apostles in the greater kingdom.
