2020 Church Goals:
1. In order to grow believers in their faith through study of the Word, Christ Church will initiate two ministries:
A. Read through the Bible in a Year Challenge- 40 persons read the Word, cover to cover.
B. Small group study in Lent- 40 persons participate in small groups, to grow in knowledge of God’s Word, confidence in its reliability, and relevant application in life.
2. In order to “contend for faith once for all entrusted it to saints,” (Jude 3) Christ Church will partner with Wesleyan Covenant Association to plan, promote and host two events in 2020:
A. WCA youth retreat (Plugged IN) reaching up to 125 youth, with a goal for a power surge of fresh faith.
B. “Contend for the Faith” gathering, East Ohio Churches will rally to reclaim God’s work of sanctifying Faith and embrace renewed appreciation for our Wesleyan doctrinal heritage.
3. So that Christ UMC might have fresh zeal to reach those who do not have have a personal saving relationship with Christ, we will ask 100 men, women and Children to spend 50 days of intentional prayer for the lost.
4. Designate a leadership Sunday in 2020 with the focus on ministries of the Church and to raise awareness of opportunities for service in areas of need.
