Now is an important and exciting time for the parish we all love. As you know, we're working to: 1) build a new Community Center including temporary relocation, 2) retirement of our long-serving Rector, and 3) post-pandemic membership / attendance growth. These and other priorities are in addition to needs of a more typical year.
This is a call to Vestry service for members with appropriate leadership or ministry experience and a passion for COS' success (and baptized / attending / contributing members 18 years or older). The Vestry is the governing board of the parish.
There are two current openings on the Vestry. Our Parish by-laws allow for mid-term appointment to vacancies. Those appointed would serve out a remaining term - currently, there is a two year and a three year term open.
In addition to those of us who have not yet served, service by those of us who have served in leadership before is encouraged (perhaps service a few years ago, for example).
Interested members or those who'd like to nominate another with their permission should email Vestry Membership Chair Bob Stine or give him a call at 773-575-5200. Questions welcome as well.
Thank you for prayerfully considering this call to service at an exciting and key time for COS!
