Immanuel Church, Highlands
IMMANUEL'S MISSIONAL IDENTITY
Ever since your vestry conducted the parish survey, we have been working and praying with the results to discern a statement we are calling our Missional Identity. We are pleased to have successfully discerned the statement. It is as follows:
Immanuel is a Welcoming Community,
Celebrating and Sharing the Good News of Jesus
through Worship, Prayer, Learning, and Service.
In addition, we approved a statement of Core Values that states our current priorities in six key areas.
OUR CORE VALUES:
Worship and spiritual nurture
• We celebrate our Episcopal traditions and sense
of God’s presence among us.
• Experience meaningful sermons that relate faith to life.
• We offer opportunities for all to learn.
• Care and counsel for individuals in need.
In serving others, we bless and are blessed
• Outreach programs.
• We respond to human need by loving service
Our caring congregational feeling is a gift of God
• We encourage opportunities for fellowship.
• We lovingly welcome all new and diverse people.
Our physical church structure
• Retain and maintain our buildings and grounds
to the glory of God..
