The Vestry consists of the Rector and 12 elected lay members. Each elected lay member serves a 3-year term. The Vestry provides oversight in the temporal activities, business affairs, and property of the Church; assists the Rector in providing spiritual leadership and oversight of the ecclesiastical affairs of the Church; prays regularly for the Church and its mission; and serves as a resource for godly counsel, biblical wisdom, and accountability for the Rector and other clergy of the Church.
All deliberations of the All Saints’ Church Vestry are prayerfully conducted in peace and love. No decision is made in haste, but rather in prayer-centered discussion and discernment to “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit [to a place of unanimity] through the bond of peace” (Ephesians 4:3). The blessing we experience reflects this unity (Psalm 133).
Prayer and praise are vital parts of every Vestry meeting. The Vestry meets twice a month on Mondays and other times as needed. Read the minutes from previous meetings.
The Church has a Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer who are uncompensated volunteers appointed by the Vestry. The Treasurer reports directly to the Vestry and serves as a member of the Executive Committee. The Treasurer has the principal responsibility to safeguard and maximize the returns on the assets of All Saints’ Church and to advise the Vestry regarding financial management, policy, procedure and compliance matters including Federal, State, and local regulations. Linda DeMott, Treasurer, and Carol Updike, Assistant Treasurer, serve in these positions.

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world." 1 Peter 5:6-9

“But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things, I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:10 – 13
