We want to see more lives changed FOREVER! That is what I live for, and that is what Vision 2020 is all about. It allows our church to reach more worshippers, deepen our own sense of community, impact the lives of more children, AND open a new center for life change! That's a lot! It is a creative way for us to continue changing lives beyond the year 2020!
Last week, Jon Costas, our elder chair, shared with the congregation some of the creative plans we have been working on. We have put addition renderings online for your viewing, plus FAQs and a place for you to provide input. This Sunday, we are hosting Vision 2020 input forums at 9:45a and 11:15a. Plan to attend one of our three morning worship services and spend some time in a forum. Our plans are not finished yet. We need to hear more from you.
As I write this, my heart is filled with hope and excitement about our future. And I can't wait to open the Word this Sunday for our final week of "The Creed." We are also going to eat and drink together (communion) around the gospel as we continue to enjoy God together.
