Vision & Mission 2024
Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
We continue our growth as a Reformed, Confessional, Connectional, Presbyterian Congregation that proclaims God’s glory through traditional worship; biblically based education; a vibrant music program in a warm, welcoming, and intentionally inclusive Christian community.
We will maintain our facility and staff to accomplish this vision.
We will accomplish this vision as a “More Light” and “Matthew 25” congregation by following the tenets of;
Building Congregational Vitality;
Dismantling Structural Racism while Empowering Marginalized and Minoritized Populations;
as well as working towards Eradicating Systemic Poverty.
Mission Statements by our Committees
Worship should reflect our belief in Jesus Christ, who gives us faith, life, unity, and mission to the World. Our worship will be inclusive, diverse, reflective, and respectful of a variety of cultures. It will represent the Reformed tradition in adherence with PCUSA .
We will approach Education as an implicit element for all ages, in everything we do as a faith community. This learning may occur in worship, fellowship, mission work, small group meetings, and other opportunities.
We are a church that carries on a mission of Teaching and Service to those who worship with us and to our community, and care of those who form the body of Christ. We will create opportunities to build relationships within the Church and community; we will support groups and activities that dismantle structural racism and empower marginalized populations; we will provide resources and support programs, services, and opportunities that provide basic needs such as food, shelter, physical and mental health; we will have a facility that actively engages the Lansing region through its welcoming and inviting nature and its safe and well-maintained condition that is optimized and maximized to serve our Christian mission. We will appropriately staff our church to fulfill this mission.
