A Message From Pastor Lisa
On Tuesday night, October 27, our Board of 12 just did a powerful thing to honor all the Saints who have gone before us and all those with us today. We made a commitment to go forward into our future on a firm foundation of our past and the work that the Saints laid out for us from the beginning of this ministry more than 100 years ago inBelmont Heights!
We are called to worship God with other believers – not just through our weekly services, but also through our ministry for and with others.
So that is what our Board decided to do – not give away or give up – BUT GIVE OVER all our resources to God, to preach the gospel and worship God continually – in word, in action, in offering all of ourselves! The Board of 12 has unanimously approved and ratified the work of the RESET team to go forward, embracing our past, and building upon our firm foundation to a vision of the future.
For those who might not be familiar - our group has been working for 10 weeks toward a RESET of our church. What is RESET?
Ready – to meet our New World
Engaged – with one another and our Community
Sustainable – through generosity, partnerships, and good stewardship
Energized – by the Holy Spirit in Worship, Ministry, and Vision
Transforming – lives through Jesus Christ!
We have approved our new Mission, Vision, and Purpose statement as well as our Culture and Values Statement. These are:
