At FHC, the cornerstone of our ministry is our vision. What is our vision? How will it help our community? How will it shape our church body?

Vision matters. Vision is the specific focus of our church. Vision is about concentrating on one area at a time because we can’t focus everywhere at once. We prayed and collaborated as a staff and church board to determine the most important place to focus from now through June 30, 2018.

Vision 2018: We will be a church without walls, fully engaged in serving the people of our community.

Our vision is our focus for a set period of time.  This focus is given context, support, and boundaries by four core areas that continually frame whatever vision we pursue in each church season.

Vision 2018, our focus for this season of our church life, is strengthened by these four equal sides of our “Vision Frame”:

  • Mission: Loving people into a lifelong friendship with God
  • Values: Love, acceptance, forgiveness, grace, the Bible, worship, participation
  • Strategy: Connect with people, show compassion, meet needs, win confidence, and invite people to join us in following Jesus
  • Measures: Attend worship regularly, volunteer, support FHC with tithe and offerings and pursue our mission

Next vision: In the first half of 2018, we will begin to wrestle with what God wants us to focus on in the next season of church life.
