Leadership

Our Leadership Ministry offers many ways for individuals who are called to a larger role in the church organization to get involved. 

Vestry – The Vestry is the lay governing body that conducts the business of Grace Church.  Individuals are elected at the church’s Annual Meeting and each member serves a 3 year term.  Vestry meets once a month and is in charge of all church financial and building / grounds decisions.

Regional and Diocesan Council Representatives – Delegates serve as our representatives at all Region XII meetings (typically one per quarter) and represent Grace Church at our Annual Diocesan Convention.

Finance – The Finance team supports the Treasurer by managing the reconciliation of the weekly collection.

Buildings and Grounds – This ministry is vital to the ongoing care of Grace Church. We are blessed with an historic sanctuary built in 1876, and a beautiful Parish Hall that serves not only as place of worship but also as a place for community and churchwide gatherings. Under the leadership of the Junior Warden, members of this team ensure that the all the property and buildings are well maintained and preserved.

Stewardship – Members of the Stewardship Ministry work with the Rector and Vestry each year to promote gifts of time, talents, and financial resources during our annual stewardship campaign. They work to provide ongoing education about how those resources are utilized throughout the year.
