All-Church Sunridge “Journey Wall” Summit THIS Sunday, Nov 3, from 3-6pm that will include dinner and childcare.
Over the next several months we will hold a series of “summits,” looking at where:
- Sunridge has been
- Where we are
- Where God is leading us
A Journey Wall is a collection of Sunridge ministry events and milestones God has used to shape us into the church we are today.
“I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done.” Psalm 143:5
Each church has a unique story to tell. The creation of a Journey Wall of our history will help to give us perspective, affirm the past, while indicating significant milestones that can point our church to the future.
This will help us in (at least) three ways:
- By considering our unique strengths and weaknesses we will identify 3-6 specific core values (i.e., Sunridge distinctives). As we begin the search for a permanent pastor, we are looking for a person with a basic “values match” with us.
- The more we can effectively process the past, the less likely we are to make the same mistakes, AND the more likely we will be able to build on our strengths.
- The more work we do prior to the actual pastor search, the more likely it is we will attract the right permanent pastor.
”Let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. I confess the sins we Israelites, including myself and my father’s house, have committed against you.” Neh. 1:6 (NIV – emphasis added)
