What's Your VISION?

“Where there is no vision the people perish…” (Proverbs 29:18)

Vision is essential if any person or group is to ever achieve its fullest potential. Having, sharing, and implementing a biblical Vision can give us a direction to shoot for, a goal to move towards, and can harness the energy and power of God to get us there. And, as the scripture above indicates, the lack of Vision can effectively destroy us.

That’s why, during our morning services this past Sunday, we took most of the sermon time asking congregants to respond to the following question: “What is your Vision for our Church?” If you were there, you’ll remember hearing a variety of thoughtful, creative, and forward-thinking answers. While many shared their responses that day, if you weren’t able to share for whatever reason, you can still share by emailing your thoughts and visions to our church lay leaders.

All of the responses we receive over the next few weeks (including those from last Sunday mornings’ services) will be shared with our Strategic Planning Team as they continue the process of further defining and articulating what we feel to be the strategic plan (or “Vision”) for our church’s future. Their hope is to have something further to share this year that we can begin to implement as soon as possible.

Until then, remember who you are (A Mosaic of God’s family… Gathering, Growing, and Going) and let that be a starting point for where we’re going and who we’re becoming. And never forget that God loves you and I do, too!
