VBS is a Combined Success
This summer, VBS was held at First United Methodist Church in a joint effort that had a ton of kids in attendance.
Kids from multiple denominations joined together to have a fabulous time in worship and learning.
Healthy Church Initiative
As we continue in phase three of the Healthy Church Initiative (HCI) process, we want to give you an update as to where we are in the
implementation stage. During our ministry assessment, our ministry assessment team gathered information from every area of ministry and outreach to see how each area of ministry is in alignment with our newly developed Vision Statement. We are excited, and proud, to report that, even though there are always areas for growth and new ministry opportunity, the ministry assessment team found that all of our ministries and outreach areas connect with our Vision Statement.
Our final two areas of the HCI prescriptions are to assemble a Bridge Event Team and an Intentional Faith Development Team. Our Bridge Event Team has already been assembled and has been meeting for the past several months and the Intentional Faith Development team is being formed and will soon begin meeting.
The purpose of the Bridge Event Team is to find ways to connect to our community as well as develop a hospitality system from a guest’s parking lot arrival to parking lot departure and follow up for all congregational events. The purpose of the Intentional Faith Development Team is to create a clear discipleship pathway for moving people from where they are on their spiritual journey to becoming a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ.
