OUR VISION STATEMENT:
We commit to be a church that fosters spiritual growth and biblical knowledge to fulfill God’s calling to be disciples of Christ.
We will transform into a mission focused congregation.
This congregation is willing to seek new ideas and education to move into being a more mission-based church. We are open to God’s calling and inspiration.
As disciples of Christ, in order to live into our vision and become more of a mission driven congregation, we will focus on families in the larger community.
The act of discipleship addresses the top five survey areas identified by the congregation through the following endeavors:
Continue to enhance Adult Education, Spiritual retreats through Bible study and Lenten home-based dinner and discussion
Continue to explore possibility of hiring a Residential Christian Education for 1 year from a Presbyterian seminary, who has either a CE major or a combination of M. Div. and CE, to develop and implement a ministry with families in the congregation and larger community to assist with life-skills education and counsel
Develop and offer Speakers Programs to address current parenting and family issues
Form strategic partnerships with school and community leaders to address and discuss issues
Create opportunities for families in the larger community to come together for fellowship, e.g. Summer Family Night, Day Festival
Explore the possibility of providing meals to the elderly and those with limited resources
