The Vestry is a group of elected lay members of the church who serve as the governing body. They manage affairs of the church, including governance of finances, policies, and procedures. Grace Church has a twelve member Vestry, with a rotation of four members off and on each year. Members are elected by the parish at the Annual Meeting in December and serve a three year term which begins the following January.
The head of the Vestry is the Rector of the church. The Vestry elects wardens and officers each year. The Senior Warden is the senior lay member of the Vestry, who oversees the work of the church and serves as a consultant to the Rector. The Junior Warden is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of all church buildings and grounds. Officers consist of a Register, who functions as the secretary and official signature of the Vestry, and the Treasurer, who administers all church finances.
The Vestry meets on the third Tuesday of the month. Highlights of this meeting are noted in the monthly newsletter, "Times of Grace" and meeting minutes are posted on the vestry bulletin board in Grace House.
