Dreaming God's Dream
In Fall 2006 Grace Lutheran embarked on activities
to lay in a course for the church to update its statement of purpose. In
a leadership weekend Jan 25-26, 2007 the church's leaders and interested
members of the congregation set out to " Dream Godís Dream".
In facilitated sessions a vision and mission
statement was developed to provide strategic guidance on where the
church is headed as an organization, and how to get there. Furthermore
the first ministry statement was set by that leadership group to define
the immediate "next step", or a near term focus.
While the Ministry Statement will be reviewed
annually for possible updates, Vision and Mission statements are meant
to provide long-term guidance for Grace's day-to-day operations.
