Looking Back & Looking Ahead.
The first part of 2017 we’ll embrace a theme of celebration. We will look back at some of the challenges we have faced, both personally and collectively, and see how the power and presence of God has overcome these things and brought joy and celebration. We will also look ahead to the challenges we still face, the harms we have endured, and the hurts and suffering of those in our larger world. We will make a concerted effort to hold out hope and an expectation of positive outcomes through faith in our God. So, the first part of the new year leading up to Easter, we will be celebrating the church’s impact on our world, both in terms of what we are doing… A N D What more can be done…
As we take inventory of our ministries, we will focus our celebration in the following ways:
- Changing the world- Our global impact.
- Living in Community. Loving our local neighbors and cherishing our country.
- Proclaiming the Good News – Advocating for justice and righteousness.
- Promoting the Good News – Serving the impoverished.
