This past year has taught us a lot about who we are and what we value as a community of faith. Conversations with members to prepare for this stewardship campaign have offered an intimate window into what we think about the future and where we need to focus our efforts to make the biggest differences in the world. One consistent theme in these conversations is the realization that what we do outside the walls of the Church is crucial to reaching the people who need us the most. In looking outward to make an impact in the world, we are living out our mission to act with justice, to serve one another, and to journey humbly with God (inspired by Micah 6:8). We have realized this past year how innovative outreach can welcome new members into the fold that would otherwise be missed. To be sure, the coming year is one of renewal: renewed connections, renewed spirits, renewed worship, and renewed dedication to our congregation’s mission. This stewardship appeal is targeted to grow the Mission Development Ministry at King of Kings. Mission Development is all about looking outward and building the connections that will help us to realize our mission and thrive as Church.
