Our mission is simple: faciliate life change. In other words, we live to see lives transformed. It’s why we do church. It’s the point of our activities. We seek to Encounter God because that’s a means to life change (not forgotting that God deserves us to seek Him). We encourage Connecting Points because they are a means to seeing life transformed by God through His word and His people. We encourage Serve activities because we know Jesus was a servant and service is a means to becoming more like Him.
But how do we know if it’s happening? There are lots of practical ways to try to measure what we are doing. We can count people in worship, in small groups and classes, or involved in service. We can count the offering and compare what we get to what we used to get and to what we need. We can look at the calendar and see what activities we are doing and how folks are responding.
But, honestly, the best way to know if it’s happening is for you to tell us. And we want to know. So, please, respond to this blog with a brief story of the way your life is changing. Tell us what’s happening that tells you that your life is different. Relate an anecdote about a friend or family member in whom you see transformation. Help us make sure we are actually doing what we’re here to do.
