11For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
The strategic plan (link) is much more than an institutional document. It represents a communal movement that solidified our ministries and increased the number of participants in all aspects of our church life.
• Pastoral Care
• Youth and Children
• Community Life
• Parish Operations
The strategic plan was made to be flexible and responsive to a changing environment and needs. Not all of our initial three-year goals were met. Some were modified and others that were no longer relevant were dropped.
After the first three years, we understood that this plan is vital to our community’s growth. Moving into the fourth year, we identified new goals and acknowledge that the plan is a living guide that keeps us focused on doing what God is calling us to do at Good Sam.
