Save the Date!
The Annual Meeting of Christ Church Parish, Kent Island is always an important milestone in our journey together. We hear a review of the year from Fr. Mark, present the Parish Annual Report, elect Vestry Members and Delegates to the Diocesan Convention, and recognize the contributions of our ministries. We will also receive a presentation on the Parish Finances for 2020 and discuss the approved 2021 Operating Budget. Because of COVID Restrictions, the Annual Meeting will be held on Zoom this year. Watch for emails detailing how you can participate virtually.
Four areas of Ministry shape the daily heartbeat of our Parish: serving our community in Outreach Programs, caring for one another in Care and Community Activities, leading and sharing in Worship, and strengthening our discipleship with our Children, Youth & Families Programs. On January 24 we will recognize the many accomplishments in this unusual year.
Election of Vestry Members
The Vestry is the Parish leadership council, made up of the Rector, Wardens, Treasurer and nine elected leaders. Members serve as the agents and legal representatives of the Parish in all matters concerning its corporate property and the relation of the Parish to its clergy. Vestry members find their time of service to be an interesting and productive way to contribute as they attend oversee the ministries and functions of the church.
Each year, the Parish elects three new Vestry members to serve for three-year terms. Any communicant in good standing who is at least 16 years of age and a member of the Parish for at least six months is eligible to serve as a member of the Vestry.
Completing their term in 2021: Colleen Minahan, Jeff Pike, Dottie Wilson. Thanks go to each of them for their contributions to our Parish!
