12 Month Goals and Swim Lanes
As we narrow our focus for the next 12 months, we decided to focus on four goals. Our goals are simple: Connect to God, Connect Our Members, Reach Our Community, and Be God’s Stewards. In this season we believe God is calling us to strengthen our church in these areas.
1. Connect to god
If we aren’t going to connect to God intentionally, then we are missing the whole point.
2. connect our members
Our motto is “let’s do life together.” At Grace we want to have genuine relationships with the people who come through our doors. It is in relationships we strengthen bonds between God and others.
3. reach our community
God has called us to be His disciples. As Jesus found a way to be relational with people wherever He went, we too want to be relational to the people here in our community.
4. god’s stewards
We are God’s stewards. A steward is the manager of the household. The steward is not the owner of the assets, but is responsible for the owner’s property. Grace Church doesn’t belong to us, the people, but it is our responsibility to take care of it.
We have identified actions steps to accomplish these goals — we call them “swim lanes.” If we all choose a lane to swim in, we have the ability to reach our goals together. This is a movement about the Lord and His people! Let’s swim together.
