Turns out that we, as the community of Marble Memorial UMC, have an established statement of mission—a mission aimed at guiding our community to being a thriving church, and functioning and serving in the best likeness of Jesus Christ possible. This is admittedly a tall order, and a lifelong endeavor. Nevertheless, our church mission statement, which can be found every week printed on the cover of our worship bulletins or recited at every committee meeting, is both readily comprehendible and very actionable. But to be attained and realized, it must be both understood and embraced.
This September we will take a closer look at our church mission statement, diving into its relevance in our present and daily lives, and focusing on how it can serve to guide us into both closer community and likeness in Christ. Invite someone in your life to join you in worship as we explore the power of the Marble Memorial mission statement. Its associated success does not come with being dragged through the mud, but rather thriving as community, united by the power of God.
May you be continually transformed by the mind and love of God in Christ. Blessings … Pastor Bob
