From the Pastor's Pen
I want to use my space in this month’s newsletter to share our new church mission statement and our 3 core values with you. The Church Board has spent time praying, studying, and discussing to come up with what we believe is a concise mission statement and core values that represent what we value the most. We believe that both are Biblical based and I will include the Scriptural basis for each below.
We will now continue to pray and plan and budget based on our Mission and Core Values. Your input is always welcome and your prayers are especially needed as our church moves ahead. God has been blessing, we are growing, and we are excited about the future!
Church Mission Statement:
To be and develop disciples of Christ
Ø Love God with all of our being,
Ø Love people compassionately and unconditionally,
Ø Share the Good News of Jesus Christ in every way possible.
Scriptural Background of Each:
Mission Statement: Matthew 28:19-20
Mt 28:19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
- “Love God with all of our being.”

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my
house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not
throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing
that there will not be room enough to store it."
