IMMANUEL CHURCH HIGHLANDS

2018 ANNUAL MEETING

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2018

12:00 NOON


Notice is hereby given that the Annual Congregational Meeting of Immanuel Church, Highlands, shall be held on Sunday, February 11, 2018 at 12:00 noon in the Church Parish Hall located at 2400 West 17th Street, Wilmington, DE 19806.


CANDIDATES FOR ELECTION TO VESTRY

Gretchen Broadwater

Marie DuPont

Barb Volko


GRETCHEN BROADWATER: I have been attending Immanuel-Highlands for approximately 20 years and been part of the 8:00 a.m. service for 15 years. As a lifelong Episcopalian, I have served many years as a Sunday School teacher and youth group advisor in previous churches. At Immanuel, I have taken part in numerous educational and outreach programs offered. Participation in the Epiphany House dinners has been especially meaningful to me. I served on the Vestry from 2014-2017 and was Junior Warden during my third year. It was my first experience of being part of this decision-making component of our church and one I felt privileged to be a part of. If elected, I will gladly serve another term.


MARIA DuPont: I have been a member of Immanuel for 25 years and have been a member of the choir all that time. It means a lot to me to also serve the Immanuel community in other ways: as a eucharistic visitor, lector, bread baker and bringing food to Epiphany House and Andrew’s Place. I am honored to be asked to serve on the vestry again. Immanuel is my church home, my family of faith, and I will do my best to offer my discernment guided by faith, reason, and my heart.


BARB VOLKO: I have been a faithful servant of Immanuel, Highlands for over 25 years. It is my home away from home. Currently, I help run the Flower Ministry and serve as the Vestry Secretary. I also am a nursery helper, and fellowship helper! I feel called to serve as a member of Vestry because there are so many important issues we face as a parish and as a corporate church. I hope to be able to problem solve and communicate to bring about positive changes.
