Mission Clarity Event

Sat., Apr. 17, 4 PM, Gym and via Zoom at bit.ly/3tnIXuk, Meeting ID: 846 6650 3959, Passcode: 839831
At this event you are asked to be part of the conversation about the pillars of our life together [listed below]. Those gathered will break into conversation groups to discuss the questions below that will help us evaluate and improve these pillars.

Come ready to share openly and think creatively! Your input is essential! 

 

Ministry Clarity Questions

  • Praising – Psalm 100

Since God has blessed Immanuel with space and a community that uses their talents freely and generously in praising God, then:

  • How can we creatively incorporate praise in all aspects of what we do?
  • How do we include praising outside of the sanctuary?

 

  • Serving – 1 Peter 4:10

Since God has blessed Immanuel with resources and a community eager to use their talents freely and generously in serving God and others, then: 

  • What unmet need is there in your neighborhood that Immanuel could fulfill?
  • What are mission opportunities that we could develop and spearhead in a creative and innovative way?
  • How do we include prayer and sharing our faith as part of our serving opportunities?

 

  • Learning – Proverbs 23:12

Since God has blessed Immanuel with resources, leaders, and a desire to grow in God’s Word relationally and academically, then:

  • What learning opportunities are we missing?
  • How can we expand our reach?

 

  • Connecting – Ephesians 4:16

Since God has blessed the Immanuel family with a desire to grow in relationship with God, each other, and the community-at-large, then:

  • What on ramps can we develop to connect people to Immanuel?
  • How can we foster stronger ties among the entire Immanuel community [church, school, and …]?
  • How do we build our remote congregation, including shut-ins?

 

  • Praying – 1 Thessalonians 5:17 and Philippians 4:6-7

Since God has blessed the Immanuel family with a desire to discern His will through a deeper, unceasing conversation with Him and to intercede for all those in need, then:

  • There is positive momentum in Immanuel’s prayer life. How do we grow it even more?
  • How do we make prayer and listening to God part of all that we do at Immanuel?

 

  • Group Question

How can we more fully further our mission?

 


 

Purpose Statement Immanuel is a family of faith encouraging each other and our neighbors in ever-deepening faith and community in Christ.

We are then challenged to answer the question, “What do the people of Immanuel need to be doing consistently to advance our purpose?” The answer led us to five pillars of life and faith at Immanuel.

The Five Pillars are:

Praising—Celebrating God’s love in in all we do

Praying—An ongoing conversation with God corporately and individually.

Learning—Going deeper in the knowledge of God, His will and His ways.

Serving—Sharing God’s love through action designed to help and support others in their life and faith.

Connecting—Building relationships of faith and trust that take us deeper with God than we could go on our own.

We believe that as we grow in these five pillars, we will naturally see our community go deeper in faith and love for God and those He loves.
