“Lifting Up, Looking In, Reaching Out

As your pastor, Prospect’s New Year’s Prayer Vigil and Vision Retreats have certainly been highlights of the past two years. Both have represented long, but blessed, days. One is marked by hours of silence...sometimes pacing before God’s altar, sometimes sitting at a prayer station, always reflecting and listening for the Lord’s voice to speak a word of direction. The other is marked by “holy conferencing” as prayer-filled members of the church wrestle with our perception of congregational strengths and areas of opportunity for potential growth. Through both, God works in big ways.

This year’s experiences have helped us discern a vision for “Lifting Up, Looking In, and Reaching Out” as a people of faith. We want Prospect to be marked as a congregation that is constantly Lifting Up Christ in both corporate and individual worship. We want Prospect to be marked as a congregation that is diligently Looking In to meet the spiritual and physical needs of its members. We want Prospect to be marked as a congregation that is intentionally Reaching Out to love and serve others with the message of individual and societal salvation that is offered through Jesus. We want to foster a common language around these three expressions.
