St. Peter's Vision, Values, and Mission (posted May 16, 2013)
The new St. Peter's vision, values, and mission, approved by the vestry, have been set to music and chant. The congregation was invited to sing along as we used the vision, vaules, and mission as the Psalm on the weekend of May 12. The text and music for our VV&M and a recording of the choir singing this chant at our 11:00 am service can be foudn in the sidebar on the right side of this page.
Vestry approves new St. Peter’s Vision, Mission and Values: to be shared with the Parish April 17th
At the Vestry meeting on March 12th, members of the Committee presented the critical foundational elements of the Five Year Plan, the Vision, Mission and Values statements.
These statements were the result of consultation with the Parish at an evening event in late January and many hours of discernment and discussion in workshops and meetings. Vestry members enthusiastically approved them and agreed that now it’s time for us to unveil this work to the Parish and to ask for your input into the next stage of our process, which is discerning the goals and objectives which will enable us to live out our Vision, Mission and Values.
Please get involved in helping the Committee, Clergy and Staff to discern God’s will for St. Peter’s over the next 5 years. Come to the Parish Consultation event on April 17th from 6 to 8pm in the Parish Hall share the new Vision, Mission and Values, give us input on Parish Goals and Objectives and enjoy a light supper and fellowship as well!
The SWOT survey (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) was emailed to Parishioners on March 14 th and has already had over 50 replies! This survey is important in helping us with the next stage of our process, discerning Parish Goals and Objectives.
Please give us your feedback by filling in the survey BEFORE MARCH 29TH at
If you have any problems with the survey, please ask Allan Dorsey or Claire Brooks to help you with the software.
In Fall 2012 the St. Peter’s Vestry invited representatives from all ages, Ministries, clergy and staff to form a Committee to develop a Five Year plan for the Parish. In this video, we’d like to explain the process behind what we’re doing and share some of the work we’ve been doing to create an inspiring Vision for our church.
One of the first steps in this Process was a full day workshop in which Committee members prayed about and discerned the Values and Vision for St. Peter’s. This work was done in small groups and we’d like to share some of our hopes, dreams and thoughts with you now.
The Vision and Values statements are the first step in our process, which we aim to complete by Fall 2013. There will be several stages of consultation with Parish and Vestry throughout. The final Strategic Plan will act as a roadmap for the future of St. Peter’s, as we grow God’s Mission for us with the communities we serve and strengthen our Ministries and our St. Peter’s Community.
We encourage you to share your feedback on our work so far in our Strategic Planning Blog.
