God's Vision for our Church
“Write the vision, make it plain on tablets…
For there is still a vision for the appointed time…
if it seems to tarry, wait for it; it will surely come.”
For the past several months, our church elders have been seeking to articulate God’s vision for us at this time in
the life of our church. As we have listened for the whispers of the Holy Spirit, we have heard God calling us to
connect more deeply to our community and to help those in need, especially those who are hungry. This
congregation has long had a heart for mission and has given generously of time and resources both locally and
abroad. We want to build on this history, telling the story of the many ways our members contribute to our
community, and increasing our hands-on mission efforts.
In this season when the divisions in our country have intensified, we are called to unite in the work that matters
most – sharing the good news of Jesus Christ in concrete ways. We do this by feeding those who are hungry,
welcoming strangers, caring for those who are sick, and visiting those in prison. Jesus teaches us that when we do
these things, we participate in God’s kingdom - life as God intended it to be.
Led by the Holy Spirit, we will grow in faith,
connecting to one another and our community
as we serve people in need.
Having written the vision and made it plain, we now begin the process of living into it. I covet your prayers as we
make our way towards God’s vision for us. It is my privilege to serve as pastor of this congregation which listens
for the leading of the Holy Spirit and seeks to follow Jesus in service to others.
