Council Notes- June 2018

At the June council meeting a new mission statement was adopted.

“focusing on families growing in faith”

This statement will help us focus on how we will be a caring congregation reaching out to all. It is a statement that will help St. John’s focus it’s energy and help define who we are. For the congregation, there will be very little change, as this mission was selected because it aligns with what we are here at St. John’s. We will focus and grow programs that promote faith and families.

This is also the last piece of the puzzle for our rebranding campaign. Over the course of the summer the new steeple logo, the vision and new mission will begin to appear. By September 1 we should have our branding plan fully in place on our printed material, signage newsletter, bulletin and more.

Included in the GNG is your opportunity to support and grow the brand. We have put together an apparel order form. There are almost an infinite number of combinations on styles, colors even a choice on the logo. It is a great easy way to promote St. Johns. We have a July 15th deadline, we hope to turn these around for VBS. Those ordered after the deadline will be submitted once we have enough garments to submit another order.
