Church Theme for 2017
LIVING OUT THE VISION


November 13th


WHAT'S NEXT???
The next phase for Revitalization
 
As many of you know by now the vote taken last Sunday on our Vision Pathway for Revitalization resulted in an overwhelming show of support (97% plus) to go forward. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your confidence in our leadership and your prayers for God's will to be revealed for our future.
 
Now that we have established our Vision Pathway concerning what we need to be doing (Our Mission Mandate); why we need to be doing it (Our Values); and, how we need to do it (Our Strategy), many of you may be wondering, "What's Next." I can answer that question in two words: "Hard work!" The next phase of our Revitalization will involve a lot of hard work and commitment. As you know, our theme for 2016 was "Embracing God's Vision." Now that we have embraced our Vision Pathway, it is time now to live out that Vision.   So our theme for 2017 will be "Living Out the Vision."
 
What will this involve?
 
- First, our leadership team will continue to meet monthly to lead the way in examining each of our ministries as it relates to our Vision Pathway. They will study ways in which we can improve what we are currently doing to make disciples.
 
- First on the agenda will be our greeters ministry. This involves all of our "first impression" ministries, such as, parking lot greeters, indoor greeters, people who are stationed at our information booth, some new signage and banners, along with training volunteers who will guide, direct, and inform our guests each Sunday.
 
- Once these things are established we will then begin to focus on improving our small Bible fellowship groups (Sunday school classes). We will look at ways our existing groups can be improved, as well as areas where we can create and form new groups. Training will take place at this time for new teachers. Following this, study and focus will be given to all of our ministries on ways we can improve what we are doing for The Great Commission as we seek to raise the bar for the Glory of God.
 
In conclusion, it is my prayer that God will touch your heart concerning what part you need to play in His ongoing work through our church. All of this is going to require volunteers, members of our fellowship who are willing to roll up their sleeves and get busy for the Kingdom of God. May God help us as we move forward for His Glory.

Exciting News

On 11-13-16 we will be moving our
Morning Worship Service  to the  FLC

Our project to replace the worn carpet around the Worship Center has begun. 
              
For the work to be completed in the shortest period of time as possible there will be some changes for the  next few Sundays. 

We will worship in the Family Life Center on Sunday mornings and in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday evenings during this time period.

We will need several volunteers to setup and take down chairs each week.

The theme is "Take Care to Give Care." The first rule of taking care of others: take care of yourself first. The chance to take a breather, the opportunity to re-energize, is vital in order for you to be as good a caregiver tomorrow as you were today. NOTE: The next meeting of the Caregivers Support Group will be January 26, 2017, at 9am in Fellowship Hall.
