WHAT IS MINISTRY CLARITY?
Ministry Clarity is an opportunity for us to examine and refocus our ministries at Bethany, guided by a team from the Lutheran Church Extension Fund. We know “the purpose” of the Lord’s Church on earth, but we’ll be considering how that broader mission of the Church might be better implemented at Bethany? That is, how might our current ministries, activities, and events be altered to better align with our Lord's mission? The end goal is for the congregation’s leadership to have clarity on our path and purpose as decisions are made, as well as for the congregation to have renewed zeal and support for our church’s many ministry opportunities.
