 Scott Seidenshwarz, Organist & Choirmaster

 

We are pleased to make it official that Scott Seidenschwarz has been made permanent Organist and Choirmaster.  Scott got dropped in our laps not long after Rees Roberts' departure to serve as Interim. During the interim period he has served faithfully to provide music that was both beautiful as well as seasonally appropriate.  Please give Scott a hearty St. Luke's welcome, and let him know you are glad he is sticking with us! 

 
 
 
The Vestry
 
The Vestry of St. Luke’s is responsible for carrying out the mission of the church; “to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.” The Vestry operates under the Canons of the Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Arkansas. The 12 elected lay members, along with the rector, are responsible for managing the parish. Members serve three year terms, with four members elected annually at the parish meeting. Officers include the senior warden, junior warden, clerk and treasurer.  The treasurer is not an elected Vestry member. The Vestry meets monthly, excluding July/August, on the third Tuesday of the month.
 
Expectations for Vestry members include having a strong personal commitment to Jesus Christ and to carrying out his ministry in our community; being a member in good standing of he Episcopal Church; regular in prayer, worship, and attendance at Vestry meetings. Vestry members must be active in the life of the parish and willing to assume leadership. They must honor and be an up to date  pledger of record and be committed to sacrificial financial giving to the parish. Each member is called to love God first, the mission of the church, secondly and their own personal needs lastly. Ultimately, Vestry members must be open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
