Salem’s Mission and Vision Statements are perfect guides to help us engage with one another and the broader community. We have new work to do right here in our own church, with our Peoria neighbors, and in collaboration with synod and global partners. There is much to be done as we engage more fully in the work that God gives us with joy and peace filling us to overflowing, so that we may abound in hope, empowered by God’s Spirit.
This month-long emphasis is all about increasing our engagement with our mission and vision and committing ourselves to support God’s calling to us to be Christ’s people of hope!
Our focus is that “Salem will be a vibrant welcoming Lutheran community that, through the grace of Jesus Christ, is connected within by love and reaching out in hope to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with one another, the community and the world.” (Salem Lutheran Church’s Mission Statement)
And our goal of vision is Growing People in Christ through:
– Dynamic and meaningful worship and prayer as the vital core fostering our sense of belonging.
– Supportive relationships will meet the personal needs of individuals and families at all stages of life.
– Sharing the Gospel to the community and world through both word and deed.
