October 6

Mark your calendar for October 6. You will be hearing about a Vision Night congregational meeting. Harry Landrum will not be providing free eye exams (although I am glad to serve as a referral). Rather, this is the date that the vision for which the Strategic Planning Initiative has been at work for a year will be released and brought to the congregation for discussion. Actually, the whole month of October could be called Vision-Discussion-Month. Phil will present an October series of sermons on the subject, and we are preparing a five-week series curriculum to be used in small group settings. The goal is to interact with EVERYONE.

Be in special prayer for the months leading up to this time as well. We've moved from doing mostly research to crytallizing a vision and making decisions, and about to enter into communication and deliberation with the whole congregation. I've been amazed at how much work has been done and the cooperative spirit. Even so, the more difficult work still remains - arriving at consensus among leadership and congregation. All aspects of church life will be affected. All the more reason to bathe this project in prayer that we follow the will of our Shepherd.

we will certainly pray that our vision for our church will be transformed and conformed to God's.
