“What is God Calling Us To Be?” This was the question posed during the Visioning session of a few weeks ago. Our members’ thoughtful and aspirational responses to that question have defined a Vision and Mission for St. John that will guide our decisions and activities, now, and into the future.
Indeed, “God is still speaking” to our St. John family, and we have responded to our Creator’s call with a Vision and Mission that unites us in Spirit, defines why we exist, and what we will do, as we live as a church in the heart of the community with the community at heart…
We are called to create a community where all people seeking Christ will experience God’s Love and Grace;
Living as a church in the heart of the community with the community at heart, we respond to God’s calling by:
Exemplifying God’s Love and Grace
Living as Christ’s Disciples, sharing the Holy Word with others, loving God and our neighbors, seeking ways to serve needs of our members and community, providing engaging worship and religious education for all generations.
Extending God’s Love and Grace
Enhancing our welcome to be more engaging and inviting, accepting everyone no matter who they are or where they are on life’s journey, including everyone in all that we do and celebrate, and being a church where no one is judged or excluded.
Being a Harbor of God’s Love and Grace
Serving as an anchor for the community, providing a caring and safe place for all, being a resource for help and assistance, identifying and delivering programs that change lives, reaching out and into the community through mission and ministry.
