What is “Vision-11”?
Recently a group of folks from the 11:00 worship began a discernment process to address the changing dynamics of our 11:00 worship. Folks have moved on, and we are at a crossroads in addressing how we will move forward, to be effective in worship, discipleship, and outreach. Vision-11 is our prayerful process to allow God to lead our ministry discernment and path. Two weeks ago, we began our first of a series of prayer times.
Vision-11 team is reflecting on a specific topic in prayer, listening and meeting for 30-minutes for 4 weeks to seek God’s leading. On June 11, Rev. Tonya Morris, NGA Connectional Ministries will join us, or worship and prayer, and prepare us for a Saturday Vision-11 Retreat on Saturday, July 8 from 9-2.
Thank you to Brian Smith, Keith Simpson, Betsy Bagley, Jack Dempsey, Velda Graydon, Brenda Hanes, Mike and Patty White, Faith and Doug Genovese, Jerri Statham, Cindy & Craig Cox, Bobby Kirk, Meghan McMullan and Kim Reindl. What a great team!! Great things are happening! Please join in prayer discernment the week of May 14 as we listen to what God is telling us about “Who is our neighbor? Who should we reach out to in our community”?
