One of the key words in the New Testament is “TOGETHER”
God’s Word tells us that believers are to be
- alive together with Christ (Eph. 2:5).
- built together into a dwelling of God (Eph. 2:22).
- fitted and held together by what every joint supplies (Eph. 4:16).
- knit together in love (Col. 2:2).
Our five-year strategic ministry plan is what we as a church family believe our Lord wants us to do…together. Together with Him. Together with one another. It’s a beautiful concept when you pause and think about it. Doing life ... together.
Thank you to each person who participated in the development of this plan. This process has been a grass roots effort beginning with the hundreds of women and men from our church and community who completed evaluative surveys. Thank you also to those who reviewed the survey results, who made suggestions, and then refined hundreds of possible ministry initiatives. Thank you to those who voted overwhelmingly to make this our ministry plan for the next five years as we love and serve God ... together.
The following pages contain all sorts of ministry initiatives. We understand the Lord may choose to change our plans. This document is a guide not a god. We will use it as a road map to the future but also be open to whatever the Lord may bring along the way. Our experience has been that as we seek to joyfully serve Jesus, He often delights in giving unexpected opportunities and blessings.
We want to commit ourselves afresh to serving God faithfully in the upcoming years or until Christ calls us home. Let’s do this … together.
