Earlier this year, Hope began a process called Mission Renewal. In a nutshell, this project is to help us determine what we are doing well, as a congregation, and eventually what’s happening in our community that we could bring ourselves to join … where is God calling us ‘out there’. Hope’s Mission Renewal Team has been busy completing interviews of our members, neighbours, and Community Leaders, about 30+ interviews!
From all this information, the Synod Mission Renewal team leaders, (the pros), have completed a report which we are sharing with you. The report explains the trends and ideas as expressed by those interviewed. The report is on the button below, included as an attachment with the e-mailed newsletter, and there will be some paper copies available at the church as well.
Now here comes the ‘homework’ assignment!! Please take the time over the next month to ready YOUR report. Do you agree with the report? Are there some statements that you don’t think are true? Come January, Hope’s Mission Renewal Team will be meeting with various groups – including one after church – to share our views, and gather even more information about what we are as a congregation and what we might do in the community.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to be part of this interesting process.
