The ministry of the Vestry at St. Michael’s includes strategic governance and fiduciary responsibility. The expectation is that the Rector with the Vestry leadership will lead the parish to be a relevant, welcoming and Christ centered place. Many members are involved in other areas of interest, but the focus of this ministry is to lead the leaders of the church. Each vestry member identifies a ministry in which they will participate as a liaison between the committee work and the strategic goals.
The goal of the vestry is to help our ministries stay focused and get the support the need to succeed. Currently we are working on new strategic goals and marketing ourselves better within the Carmichael and Sacramento communities. It is the role of the Vestry to keep the church fiscally healthy. We meet regularly to discuss and identify opportunities of growth, areas of concern, and areas to celebrate! We want to help all members grow and spread the gospel to those who have not yet experienced it.
This year, at our annual meeting, we elected three new members. We have two openings for vestry. One is for a three year term and the other is or a one year term. You must be a member of good standing for at least six months before you can be on the vestry. If you are interested in this work, please fill out a nomination form and return it to Rev. Mary.
