Gretchen Broadwater

Barb Volko


CANDIDATES' STATEMENTS

GRETCHEN BROADWATER: I have been attending the 8:00 a.m. service at Immanuel-Highlands for approximately 15 years. In the past, have taken part in many of the programs offered throughout the years. For example, I served many years as a Sunday school teacher, youth group advisor and programs coordinator, Vestry member and Warden. My professional and volunteer experience has been with non-profit organizations focusing on human services for thirty-plus years. Although being a member of the vestry will not be a new experience for me, it is one I am willing to undertake to serve our staff, congregation, and community.


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.
