Following the development of our VISION, four goals were developed to help guide the implementation of the VISION.
1. Discipleship: a. Spiritual Gifts b. Spiritual Growth
Goal: Realizing each member has spiritual gifts, all members grow spiritually and are transformed into disciples by active participation in at least one ministry of the church.
2. Witnessing: a. Sanctuary b. No one leaves a stranger
Goal: Showing God’s love and compassion and drawing all to Him, we will passionately and genuinely welcome everyone. We will shepherd and mentor members, guests, and shut-ins in such a way which witnesses that we are truly a caring church family.
3. Inviting: a. Families b. Lake Community
Goal: Challenging ourselves we will reach out to all including families and “lake people”. * We will invite all Christians, seekers, and the unchurched through our ministries.
4. Serving/Supporting: a. Outside our church b. Needs of others
Goal: Meeting people where they are and putting their needs ahead of ours, we are striving to be a church that has a ministry to serve and support everyone.
(*Lake people refers to non-permanent residents who live on or near Lake Freeman or Lake Shafer)
