PASTOR BILL’S BYTES
Our Vision is to lead all persons into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
As most of you know by now, on September 7, I announced that Sheri and I have purchased a condominium in Marion to which we will move in October. I will continue to serve this church as Lead Pastor until next summer, when I will retire. We have come a long way from the conflicted congregation that this was when I came to serve you. I want to build on the greater sense of unity that I perceive among us in the months ahead, so that your new Lead Pastor will have the opportunity to come alongside you with an understanding of who you are called to be, and can lead you in a more focused way toward the fulfilling of your vision.
Our Church Council has identified four areas of ministry that we believe are our four “signature ministries” where God is calling us to excel in our efforts to grow in relationship with Jesus Christ and serve the Mount Vernon area. These are: Worship, Spiritual Growth, Outreach, and Family Ministries. As you can see, these are rather broad areas that still need some more precise definition to allow us to create some clear goals and action steps. Our hope is to prayerfully engage you to help us focus our energies and resources on those ministries in which God is calling us to excel to lead persons in Mount Vernon into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
As your leader, I am calling you to engage in a prayerful self-assessment of how God is calling you to grow in living out the vows of your baptism: to support the ministries of this church with your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your witness, and your service. Our Nominations and Lay Leadership Development Team is currently seeking persons who will engage in service in this church. If you are not currently doing so, please consider serving in some meaningful way.
Your servant for the sake of Jesus,
