This week a letter went out to the congregation highlighting a number of things. Among them was an exciting announcement that the Session wants to put forward to the congregation a mission statement for Cornerstone: “The mission of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church is to be a community of Christ’s followers who worship, grow, and serve together to glorify God in Huntsville and throughout the world.”
As we pray about moving downtown and being a light in our city, this has caused our leaders to reflect on the mission and vision of the church. Since its inception, Cornerstone has had a vision statement based on Acts 2:42. We love this vision as it has given us clear direction and purpose as to who we are and who we hope to be. “Why do we need a separate mission and vision statement,” you may ask? Good question!
We believe a mission statement helps to articulate how we plan to accomplish our vision. A mission statement helps us to clarify vision and give us clear purpose as we pray about relocating to downtown. Please pray that God would help us to be true to this mission as we seek to glorify Him and love others.
Your friend and pastor,
