St George's Episcopal Church


" I am really glad that I attend St. Georges because it is a smaller, yet very comfortable church, and I am thankful for the people that are there now." - Sam Foster, Past Vestry Member

The governing board at St. George's is its Vestry. The congregation elects Vestry members to make decisions about how best to carry out God’s will for St. George’s and how to make God known in this community. The Vestry is legally responsible for all matters of finance, property, and maintenance within the parish, either directly or through the appointment of trustees. Each member of the Vestry also serves as a liaison to a parish committee.

The officers and their duties are: the Senior Warden, who generally assists the Rector in overseeing the mission of the parish; the Junior Warden, who takes charge of property and maintenance concerns; the Treasurer, who supervises all matters of finance; and the Secretary, who records the minutes of each meeting.

Vestry members welcome ideas and suggestions. Parishioners should feel welcome to speak with them about concerns or suggestions, and also to volunteer to help in the areas of ministry of any committee.

The Vestry meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm. All Vestry meetings are open to the congregation, except when it chooses to go into executive session.
