WHAT IS DONWAY'S STRATEGY STATEMENT?
SHINING CHRIST'S LIGHT INTO THE DARKNESS
Christ - a light to the nations - the hope for those in darkness - and he invites us to follow him - to reflect his character, his activity, his priorities.
A Strategy Statement, consistent with Christ's priorities, has been developed at Donway to serve as a framework for goal setting, implementation and evaluation. The foundational and continual priority is Prayer. Then, as a Church family and as individuals, our strategy forShining Christ's Light Into The Darkness has five focuses:
- Love others in encouraging, unconditional ways
- Serve the needs of the whole person
- Respond to God with joy and thanksgiving
- Gather for fun, festive social activities
- Spur one another to grow as followers of Jesus
- Deal constructively with conflict that arises
- Listen with empathy and understanding
- Share Christ's story and the reasons for our hope
- Welcome everyone warmly
- Develop friendships with our networks
Our Pastor or any of our Deacons would be privileged to supply the Scripture passages that established these priorities.
