On Sunday, November 19, we will have our annual congregational meeting at The Church of The Apostles. The meeting will begin promptly at 10:15 A.M. and we will vote to elect five men to serve a three-year term on our Vestry. Ballots will be available in the main corridor from 8:30 to 10:10 A.M. We will also present the 2018 budget (9:00 A.M. services/classes will still meet).
Each member of Apostles has the opportunity to nominate members of our church you believe would serve well on our Vestry. As you pray regarding the nomination and election process, begin by reading 1 Timothy 3:1-13. This will give you a clear picture of the type of leader that you should nominate for election to our Vestry.
Please keep in mind that Vestry members must be faithful stewards. Being a faithful steward involves far more than just “tithing.” A godly steward must be a faithful steward of the Word of God, his home, and church ministry. After all, the primary responsibility of the Vestry is fiduciary.
Of the names that are nominated, the Nominating Committee will prayerfully select ten to be placed on the ballot. On November 19, each church member, sixteen years and older, will have the opportunity to vote for five of the ten men nominated for Vestry service.
The 2017 deadline for nominations is September 27.
