Seagrave United Church Vision and Mission

At the Annual Meeting of 2016 02 22, the Draft Report on the Vision and Mission for Seagrave United Church was passed.  Due to a heavy agenda, we were unable to address each item; secondly some of them are going to have to be delayed for a year or two and thirdly, there are congregation members in Florida who we know would like to help. 

The following chart of our vision and mission will be posted at the church and members of the congregation are asked to consider taking on one of our Mission Goal action items and being a “champion” for that action item.  Over the next 5 weeks, there will be a brief introduction given to each of our five mission goals.  Please consider helping us achieve our Vision for Seagrave United Church.
