Vestry Discernment 2020-2022

This month, we will be electing three new leaders to serve the church on the vestry. We will be electing two church members in order to fill the vacancies left by Paul Jennings and David Cutshaw.  Thank you Dutch and David for your dedicated and faithful service!

Vestry membership should not be considered as an honor for past service but as a commitment for future service.  Prior to commencing service as a member of the Vestry, each member of the Vestry shall affirm: (1) a personal commitment to the Principles set forth in the Corporation/Church’s Articles of Incorporation, in the Nicene, Apostles and Athanasian Creeds, and any Statement of Faith adopted by the Church as a requirement for Vestry service; (2) a pledge to serve without any conflict of interest; and (3) a pledge to honor the confidentiality of all confidential materials to which the Vestry member will have access during his or her term of service. 

Other affirmations, declarations, and/or promises may be required for service as a member of the Vestry, as shall be determined by the Vestry from time to time based upon relevant ecclesiastical and/or canonical considerations.

Adult Discipleship Classes

"History of Christian Music" a 4-week class taught by Darren Jones on Feb 2, 16, 23, and March 1 during the 9:00 service in the purple room.


This class will be a look at Christian music through the centuries, with a focus on the church musical traditions of America. We'll listen to worship music ranging from chant to choirs, and from organ-led hymns to electric-guitar-accompanied solos. Whether your favorite is Hillsong or Handel, you'll learn more about the ways that Christians have worshiped God in song.


"Kings of Judah and Israel" a 4-week class taught by Darren Jones on March 8, 15, 22, and 29 during the 9:00 service in the purple room.


Ever felt lost during sermons when the pastor mentions Hezekiah, Josiah, or Jehoshaphat? Did you know that Ahaz and Ahab aren't the same person - in fact, they ruled in two separate kingdoms, over 100 years apart?" Come learn about the kings of Judah (Jesus' ancestors) and Israel (the breakaway kingdom that never got its act together).
