Our church discernment process revealed that we sense God calling us to focus on four areas:
- Reaching out to young adults (and their children, if they have children).
- Increasing our ministry “outside the walls of the church.”
- Growing more diverse as a church.
- Balancing the best in our church traditions (our DNA) while we grow in new ways.
Beginning next Sunday, August 30, I will preach a four part sermon series on these four areas. Our ministers and other leaders are formulating 2016 Ministry Plans, which will have a special focus on these four areas. I’m excited about following God as we move forward together!
