Last May, our Church Council adopted the strategic recommendations that came from our Focus First Strategic Planning Process conducted Fall 2017 – February 2018. After a series of studies and opportunity for churchwide input, the Leadership Summit held in February 2018 facilitated by renowned large church consultant Susan Beaumont, arrived at three primary strategic objectives for this two-to -three-year planning period. This is the first of a three-part series of articles to update you on the work accomplished to date on these three objectives, which include:
- INNOVATE life-giving small groups that connects individuals in our church more deeply to Christ and to one another
- ENCOURAGE connections within our “Big Tent” church with expanded physical facilities that will accommodate ministry growth and connect our community at its core
- EXPORE all the ways in which we can become a more diverse congregation to better reflect the Kingdom of God.
