A complex conversation
  • In a contemporary congregation, planning can be
    challenging because
  • people share a common faith and values
  • have very different preferences and needs

Planning as spiritual discernment
  • Planning should include process time for biblical
    study and discernment, so that we do not forget
    that this is about the will of God in our

Our Belief
  • The Church is the body of Christ both in its
    corporate life and in the lives of its individual
    members and is called to give shape and substance
    to this truth.

  • The great ends of the church are the proclamation
    of the gospel for the salvation of humankind the
    shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship of the
    children of God the maintenance of divine
    worship the preservation of the truth the
    promotion of social righteousness and the
    exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world.

Our Vision the relationship between what we
discerned, our belief, and our theological charge
  • In response to Gods love for all humankind as
    shown in the life, death and resurrection of
    Jesus Christ, Williamsburg Presbyterian Church is
    called to a rich worship, a lively witness and a
    joyful welcome to all people.
  • We will actively engage one another in
    stimulating, informative, supportive ministries
    that nurture and challenge our faith and enable
    us to minister in a changing community and world.

    understandings of our relationships with God and
    one another. We will share our faith, gifts and
    talents with our brothers and sisters in
    Williamsburg and the world.

Destination Statement 2009
  • At our foundation are the people, governance
    processes, and support activities that enable the
    church to operate.
  • Upon that foundation we have three core goals
  • Ensure a Vital Christian Community
  • Deepen our Relationship with God
  • Share our Gifts with Others
  • Activities to achieve these three core goals are
    the pillars of our church which facilitate
    carrying out our operational functions.
  • Supported by these pillars is our last goal which
    reflects our calling to create a growing church.
    Our belief is that a growing church is a healthy
    indicator of the work of the Holy Spirit in the
    life of Williamsburg Presbyterian Church.
