2015 Goals and Stories
We’ve set four goals for 2015 to us move toward fulfilling our vision of “living and giving the life Jesus promised” as a passionate, authentic, courageous, and generous people. As a congregation, we are stretching toward these goals together. We want to hear from you and celebrate with you as you join us, so be sure to tell us your stories of what you have experienced with God.
300 Acts of Courage
TAKE A RISK WITH AND FOR GOD.
An act of courage is any time we overcome fear to follow God, in any dimension of our lives. For some people, it will mean cooperating with God as He changes our character or gives us His love. Sometimes it will mean stepping out to obey God when it is risky for us to do so. Sometimes it will mean offering to pray for someone when we’d normally remain silent. We want to work together to become a community of disciples who more boldly trust and obey God — even and especially when we’re confronted by fear.
200 in D Groups
JOIN OR START A GROUP.
Doing life together in community is so important to us that we want 200 of our people to be meeting together regularly with a small group — which we call our D Groups, or Discipleship Groups. Here is where we live with authenticity as we work deliberately to “live and give” and “multiply.”
100 Hear About Jesus
TALK ABOUT JESUS WITH THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU.
God wants people to be saved, and for that, people must _hear _about Jesus and the life He promised. So, we want to go for it together, understanding that hearing and telling can take a variety of forms. Anything that moves people toward Jesus counts!

GROW IN GENEROSITY.
Generosity is one of our values, and one of the places we’re to be generous is with our resources. This generosity will allow us to continue to do kingdom work in our church, in our community, and around the world. Within our church, we have some extravagant givers, many faithful givers, and some who are just beginning to develop. We have seen God do amazing things in us and through us as we've given of our resources to Him. We're excited to watch what He does again in 2015!
