I want to share the vision for our church that was cast on Sunday morning. Let me know what you see...
"I see us being a healthy, vibrant church for all ages, actively reaching our community with the good news that God is crazy about them. This good news is shared by people who are fully alive and being transformed into the image of Christ - all while having more fun than anyone else on the planet!"
We may not be able to feed every hungry person, but we can make sure no one in this church is hungry.
We may not be able to tell every child they are loved, but we can ensure that every child within our reach knows that they are loved and have a purpose in this world.
We may not be able to change every person's mind about Christians, but we can make sure that when they meet a Christian from this church they will see Christ.
I would trade my life in - my time, energy and my giving - for this vision. How about you?
I believe in order to work toward this vision we need to prioritize two things: discipleship and ministry to young families and their children.
We have a great team who is praying for and working to increase the discipleship commitment in our church. Dave DiBernardi, Phil Fisher and Richard Brunton have a heart to see you grow in your relationship with Christ.
We have a great team who gives their time for our children's ministry. Now it's time to take it to the next level for the kids in our community.
We also need to develop ministries for the parents of these young ones, so they can connect with us and Christ as well. The best thing we can do for a child is to help Mom and Dad know Jesus.
I can wait to see how this unfolds.
This is what I will work toward. Will you join me?
