It's coming...


Over the past year, several things have emerged through various venues in our congregation:


-A group of dedicated men began wondering how we could deploy our resources and impact our community.  Meetings centered around how we could move from being primarily "inside" a building and get "outside" into our world with God's grace and good news through acts of ministry and service.


-A small team began asking questions and listening to passions within our congregation about new initiatives, needs, and dreams.  We are so blessed...but some things were "out there", things that we could or should be doing.  Some of these were BIG.  Some were like "duh"--we should already be doing this.


-Another element came in leadership discussions as we contemplated our financial resources. Our last fiscal year ended with a surplus.  Our physical resources (our building) has some immediate needs to enhance usefulness.  We have some options to consider.  We also have some much bigger dreams.


All of that has been woven together by the Spirit of God into the vision before us.  It's coming...


(more next week)


Grace and peace
