SECOND BAPTIST CHURCH IS A CENTER OF CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY
God continues to show us and remind us that more people come TO our church Monday thru Saturday than FOR church on Sunday. God is showing us that the harvest is plentiful and we have opportunities at our doorstep – quite literally!
Therefore, I believe God is calling us to be and become more than just a church for members but a center of Christian community for a wider audience. What we do and who we are should be seen through the lens of our entire Second Community.
With that in mind, this year we are focusing on four initiatives for our church:
FOCUS: TELLING OUR STORY
We’re not looking to tell people about the goodness of Second Baptist, we’re looking at how Second Baptist gets to share God’s goodness with others.
We’re not looking for outreach gimmicks to meet people, we’re looking at how to be generous with people where we find them and offer God’s grace and goodness to them.
FOCUS: INTERGENERATIONAL MINISTRY
We’re not looking for ways simply to attract young people, we’re looking to equip people of all ages with a faith that endures.
FOCUS: SPIRITUAL FORMATION / MAKING DISCIPLES
We’re not looking to make church members, we’re more interested in making disciples of Jesus.
We have much more to discern and discover together as we pursue God’s direction in these areas. This is an exciting season of our life together and I am eager for us to go where God leads!
Grace and peace,
