Things we do well included: Adult Education, Small Groups, Friendliness, Love, how we do worship, outdoor services, focus on Bible, clear Christ centered, Hiking and other opportunities,
Inviting building, VBS, BB court/playground, International Connection / Missions.
Things we would like to give attention to in the coming year:
(Highest priorities are starred*)
*Finish Prayer Path
*Outreach to Community
Spiritual Formation / Look Inward (strength and weakness)
Summer Events - Worship Events (Band, movie)
Help lead members to life mission
Be a congregation of Prayer
Infant Care Program
Events: basketball, need new signage
Internal Challenges: resistance to change / pigeon hole who we are
Position = Gift/People connector
We evaluated what areas could use a Ministry Team or Coordinator. Some already exist in some form and others we hope to develop. Please consider if you would be willing to Chair or be on a team in any of the following areas.
I will highlight that the one area that we have had little or no focus that we must make a priority is marketing. We really need a ministry team in this area.
With all Ministry Teams we will be developing at least a basic outline of objectives and responsibilities.
