2017 Congregational Goals

This year the Church Council has done something new.  Over a weekend retreat we spent time in scripture, study, and prayer.  Guided by the Holy Spirit we discerned the following values and goals that lead us to follow Christ more faithfully.  We plan to make this a yearly process after the new council is elected by the congregation.  Since we elected new members to the council at the annual meeting on January 29th, we feel the congregational year for our goals should run from March 1 to March 1.

Below are some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) from the goals presentation to help you and us all know how we can together live out these goals in 2017.

What if I don’t see a certain goal on this list?

These goals are for 2017 so we expect them to change for next year. Be sure to share your input with a council member.  CLICK HERE for a list of council members.

How will these goals actually be executed?

The council aimed for each goal to be as SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, & Time bound) as possible. The council and various committees will be taking the lead on each particular goal and evaluation will be ongoing until March of 2018. This input will also be shared as the council meets to evaluate new goals for that year.

I am excited about a certain goal. How can I help?

Contact a council member or the committee connected with that goal to share your gifts and passions.
