Vision Month at Lakeside

For those that were unable to attend last Sunday’s service, we announced that we will have a special church meeting this Sunday, November 9th at 4:30pm. I’d like to take a few moments to clarify what it is we are doing this for and what you can expect this month.

We have been operating for some time now without a clearly articulated vision of what our future is going to look like. We’d like to change that, but I feel that we need to spend some time as a family engaging in the issues. Ultimately, we would like our vision or mission to be informed by our values, which are hopefully informed by God’s Word.

With that in mind, we are setting aside the entire month of November to this task. During this time, we will do the following…

  1. We will challenge every believer to pray as we never have before
  2. We will meet each week in a special meeting devoted to shaping our future and to prayer
  3. We will begin a teaching on November 16th that will help to clarify how God sees the church

I would ask each one of you to do only one thing at the present: please do whatever you can to attend Sunday evening’s meeting. We have a 1-hour event planned broken into three 20-minute activities. These activities will help us to engage with the issues practically and my hope is that our leaders will be able to pick up on some of the values that are evident within the family.

We will be meeting at Dave and Pamela Daroff’s house at 4:30pm and we will conclude by 5:30pm-5:40pm. Parking is available in the RC Willey parking lot, and Dave and Pam’s house is the red-brick house located on the west side of the parking lot.

I hope to see you all there this Sunday. We can’t do this without each other.
