Renewing our Church:

The Way Forward

As a result of both internal and external research led by our Strategic Planning team, we are re-purposing and re-organizing for the Gospel. We are re-orienting to Bring Jesus into Life by the Lake and in the World with Renewed Values. We are: Welcoming and Inclusive, Uplifting and Inspiring, Biblical and Relevant, Intimate and Engaging. And based on the mission of the Church, found in Acts 2:42-47, we are re-organizing around four missional impacts: Impact of Worship, Impact of Life Change, Impact of Generosity, and Impact our Neighbors.

Strategic Plan Action Item.

We are very pleased to announce that the Rev. Deacon Cindy Hillger has been reappointed to St. Martin’s by the Lake by our Bishop. Deacons in our tradition serve at the will of the Bishop, with their placements renewed annually. We are extremely blessed with a Deacon of Cindy’s caliber, who understand well the role of the Deacon: “To interpret to the Church the needs, concerns, and hopes of the world.” (Book of Common Prayer, Ordination of a Deacon, p. 543)

Impact Our Neighbors

One of the ways we will live out our Strategic Plan is by Impacting our Neighbors. This sees our Church as a “Mission’s Hub” for our community. The upcoming Sunday 2 Serve is just one opportunity to come together to impact our neighbors for good.
