Capture the Vision Day

Posted on January 10, 2010

Over the past nine years the staff, church board and congregation has been developing and updating the objective, mission and vision of Pequea Church. On Friday evening, November 20, and Saturday morning, November 21, thirty nine members of the church staff, deacons, board, and finance committee members met under the direction of Reverend Kenneth Hoke to further process the objective, mission and vision of the congregation.

On Saturday, February 27, 2010 Reverend Ken Hoke will be leading a seminar on the objective, mission and vision of the church from 9:00 a.m. till 3:00 p.m. The leadership of the church is inviting each of you to participate in this public forum as we discuss together how best to accomplish our objective as a congregation.

Each person who registers between now and January 18, 2010 will be given the book “Who Stole My Church” to read. This book was written by Gordon MacDonald. Gordon was the pastor of Grace Chapel in Lexington, Massachusetts for 12 years. He left in 1984 to serve with World Vision, and then became president of a college-age missions organization, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. MacDonald also regularly teaches at Bethel Theological Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota, and Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in New England.

Gordon wrote this book to help us understand the development of the Christian Church over the past 2,000 years. He notes that through the ages any church that has not turned its face toward the younger generation simply ceased to exist.

The book will not be discussed in detail, but will help us understand that even as the church has progressed in her communication with society through the ages, it is still necessary to do so today.
