2018 has been a year of Visioning for our church. I hope you remember that we began this year with 100 days of prayer for our visioning effort. After that we collected data and ideas from hundreds of FBC folks to see and hear your dreams and visions for our church. Our 15-member Visioning Team took those hundreds of ideas and tried to distill them into five big ideas that would carry us from 2019-2024. Now we are ready to share these with you. Here is our schedule for Visioning going forward:
September 23 – First emphasis – for the year 2019. We will discuss our first step this Sunday. I hope you will make every effort to be in worship as we talk about our first priority. 2019 will not be the only year we emphasize this “big idea.” Instead, we will continue it through all five years.
September 30 – Second emphasis
October 21 – Third emphasis
October 28 – Fourth emphasis
November 4 – Fifth emphasis plus an all-adult Sunday School focus in the Sanctuary which will be an opportunity for you to decide how you will plug in and/or pray for the Vision.
I hope you will be praying for this special time in the life of our church. Our last Visioning emphasis has guided us to help hundreds of people. I believe God has more in store for us in the coming years. I look forward to sharing this adventure with you,
