The 2021 Annual Parish Meeting of Grace Episcopal Church will be held on Wednesday, February 10 at 7:00 PM on Zoom. Come hear key reports of parish business and learn the results of this year’s vestry election.
Vestry election ballots, along with information about the eight nominees, were mailed to every household on record. The parish bylaws (Section 3.4.5) state that All members who are confirmed communicants not less than sixteen (16) years of age shall be qualified to vote. It shall be acceptable to publish this qualification requirement and ask each participant to self-certify entitlement to vote. Every member of your household that meets those qualifications should return a ballot to the parish office by Tuesday, February 9 at 5:00 PM. You can mail them to 422 Brenau Avenue, Gainesville, GA 30501 but we recommend they be delivered in person and put in the bin outside the red doors of The Grace Center facing Brenau Avenue.
The election of the vestry is a pivotal moment in the life of a parish community. The twelve people you choose as your vestry take their place in partnership with the rector and staff to provide for the life of the entire community. They not only approve the budget, they also work diligently with the ministry clusters to support the spiritual health of the community regarding Administration, Participation, Compassion, Formation, and Liturgy & Creative Expression. Please spend some time reading the bios and praying for all nominees before completing your ballot.
We look forward to seeing you at the Annual Meeting on February 10 at 7:00 PM!
