Visioning Team Update

Last May the Leadership Team invited our congregation to participate in the Twelve Scriptures Project. The Twelve Scriptures Project was a group discernment process which invited everyone in our congregation to help identify the twelve most important scripture texts for us as a church. Here are the scriptures which we choose:

Genesis 1:27, 31

Matthew 5:1-12

1 Corinthians 13:4, 8, 13

Deuteronomy 6:4-6

Matthew 11:28-30

2 Corinthians 5:17-28

Psalm 100:4

Luke 4:18-19

Ephesians 2:8-9

Micah 6:8

John 3:16

Revelations 21:3

These twelve scriptures are now being used by the Visioning Team, which was called by our

Gifts Discernment Team, to help us discern God’s mission for our congregation as we move into the future.

The Visioning Team that was called consists of Ruth Collett, Brent Driver, Andrea Keller, Melonie Mottice, Kathe Ward and me. This team has been meeting for a month and is starting to create a mission statement using these texts as a guide.

Please keep this team in your prayers over the next month as they continue their work. Also, we would like for you to join us in this process. In one sentence: 

What is God’s mission for our church?

Please feel free to pass on your thoughts to anyone on the Visioning Team.
