Over the last year the board of elders, the pastors, and I have been actively listening to God and discussing together the future of Living Hope. In the fall of 2016 we pulled all of those dreams and discussions together to formulate goals and plans which we hope will serve as a framework for guiding our church in the coming years.
As we seek to refine the goals and plans, we are eager to share, discuss, and listen to your thoughts about the goals and the future of Living Hope. Over the coming months we will be holding Vision Gatherings in the homes of our Board of Elders. These gatherings will be 75 minutes in length, and will be an opportunity for you to hear what God has placed on the hearts of leadership, and to speak into Living Hope’s goals and plans for the next five years.
I want to invite you to attend one of these vision gatherings and help us set up a framework that will guide our church family for years to come. We believe that as we listen to God together and hear each other’s thoughts, we will be able to make the goals and plans even better.
To find out when and where the Vision Gatherings are, check out a special web-form that we’ve created for these events. On that website you will find a list of the gatherings with instructions on how to RSVP and let us know you are coming. It is our desire to keep these gatherings small so that everyone has an opportunity to be heard; space at each event is limited. So, be sure to check the list soon, and pick the gathering you’d like to attend.
I am looking forward to what God is going to do in and through us as a church family over the next five years.
May the peace of Christ reign in your life today,
