"whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave - just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve." Matthew 20:26-28
The vestry is composed of the rector, curate, wardens, and vestry members from the parish. The vestry oversees the finances of the parish, assists the rector in conducting the business of the parish, tends to the maintenance and renovations for the church buildings, and acts as the liaison to all the ministries within the church. The wardens and vestry are the official representatives of the parish in the absence of a rector. Calvary has 12 laypeople elected to serve for staggered three-year terms. Vestry members must be members of the church (communicants in good standing and confirmed or received into the Episcopal Church). Nominations for vestry members take place in early fall with elections taking place in early November.
We believe that as the people of Calvary Episcopal Church, empowered by the Holy Spirit and the love of Jesus, we seek to embrace all ages in our journey of faith through these Core Values:
