The R360 team was wrestling once again with our vision and mission statements. It seems that every few years we need to look at where we have been and where we are going. Lee might call these documents our road map for the future. However, as we changed a phrase here or a word there, we struggled to create concise but accurate statements of who we are as a congregation and who we want to be.
It was Liz Marks who suddenly said, “invite, grow, serve.” Those three words summarized the three statements. There was a sense of relief in the room as the words sank in: they fit what we were trying to say. They fit so well that we incorporated them into the logo as our tag line. We’ll be exploring them in sermons in October.
