2018 Spring Visioning
Led by the Church Council and Mary Schoenborn, over 100 people gathered on Sunday, April 29, to listen to one another and to share where they believe God is calling our congregation. Dilworth Lutheran people shared dozens of ideas. The Holy Spirit was moving! The primary insights are:
- We believe that God is calling us to grow deeper in our faith, service and fellowship with each other. People would like to see additional learning opportunities for people of all ages, particularly how our faith can help and guide parenting and other life stages. People want to know God more deeply, through Bible study and serving neighbors in need here in Dilworth-Fargo-Moorhead.
- We believe that God is calling us to welcome people into our church. Dilworth is growing rapidly, and we need processes, organization, worship and a church culture that welcomes all people. We want all people to know the joy and the freedom that comes from a relationship with God.
- Our building needs to reflect our desire to welcome all people to follow God here. In the coming three years, we would like to add an additional accessible restroom and update our learning spaces in the original church buildings. We also need to address issues with our roof and the west parking lot.
The church council will create specific, measurable goals from this day of visioning. Thank you for your thoughtfulness, your prayer and your care as we seek to know and love God here at the Dilworth Lutheran. Please continue listening for how God might be calling you to be a part of this!
