Dear GLVCC family,
I want to sincerely thank all those who participated in the church wide meeting on June 25th. Your input is invaluable. This meeting was conducted to help improve the GLVCC family and I believe we all took a huge step forward in the process as a result of the meeting. As promised, below are the comments from the 80 people who attended. The comments recorded reflect the wide range of thoughts and feelings of our spiritual family. The leadership group, as well as others, met Friday, June 30th, to begin the analysis of the responses and for prayer asking God for guidance on how to best move forward from here.
I want to encourage all those who participated, as well as those who did not attend, to join in the effort to pray about these things. I also want to encourage you all to get involved and do your part to help make the family better. As you read the responses, you will see much of what can be improved starts with each of our personal decisions to practice the daily Lordship of Jesus in our lives individually. There is much teaching, training and learning that must take place, but the call “Today” is to live out what we already know is right and true. As it says in Philippians 3:16, “Only let us live up to what we have already attained.” It is my deep conviction that if we simply practice what we have already been taught, the GLVCC family will grow and reflect Christ in every way.
Again, thank you for your love and support.
Minister of the GLVCC
