Quick, what’s our mission? Can you remember it? “The whole…something?” The mission of Grace Covenant Church is to proclaim the whole gospel for the whole person through the whole city to the whole world.
I know, that sounds like a tall order, perhaps even impossible. Is it measurable? Definable?
How will we know that we are accomplishing our mission? Well, we have four goals – Worship, Growth in Grace, Fellowship and Service, and Evangelism and Missions. While you could probably figure out what we mean by these four goals, eventually we’ll discuss each of them. For now, however, I want to focus on Fellowship & Service.
John Donne was right. No man is an island, entire of itself. We are made for relationships, with both our Creator and other creatures. Yet, we live busy, distracted, and disconnected lives. One of man’s greatest fears is being alone, but we do little to cultivate meaningful relationships.
