Vision

Household Wells

The Church’s vision is our answer to the question, “Where do we think God is taking us?

Our vision is “Household Wells.”

What does that mean?

It means that, sustained by the Living Water, our homes should be places that connect people to life in Jesus, where we actively demonstrate the Fruits of the Spirit: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, goodness and self-control.

A Household Well:

  • Welcomes in Jesus
  • Engages with Neighbors
  • Listens for Insight
  • Loves to Try

The Church’s Vision is our point of emphasis, the guide for all that we do. Our vision is supported by a framework of mission, values, strategy and life marks.

Our Household Well Journey

Jesus calls us the light of the world, a city set on a hill that cannot be snuffed out. That light draws people back to God and connects them to life in Jesus. 

At the Church, we believe God intentionally placed us here in Dane County, to include and involve us, right here, in His redemptive work.

What does that look like?

Homes springing with the Living Water, as sources of refreshment, peace, hope, joy and grace, freely distributed to all. Oases of God’s deep and abiding love.

Relationships — among families, friends, neighbors, coworkers — rooted in unconditional acceptance, kindness, compassion, truth and authenticity.

Communities nourished and sustained by the knowledge of God’s boundless love for all people and the gift of our eternal salvation.

We praise you, Lord, for the emerging vision you have given this congregation. We thank you that we are starting to see that you have been leading us to multiply household wells. Lord, prepare us. Prepare us for what you will ask of us. Strengthen our resolve to trust you, to seek you, to obey you! Give us courage to embrace our individual responsibility to connect people to life in Jesus. Increase in us a passion to welcome in Jesus, engage our neighbors, listen for insight, and love to try. As we do, spread your love as we love and serve our neighbors. We praise you today, Father, for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in your mission to love the world. May we be faithful to this high calling.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
