A Word from the Pastor

This summer, in addition to talking about the book, Canoeing the Mountains, we also spent some time talking about marks of vital churches.  For those of you who were not able to be part of those conversations, according to our denomination some hallmarks of vital churches are as follows:

  • Lifelong discipleship formation
  • Intentional authentic evangelism
  • Outward incarnational focus
  • Empowered servant leadership
  • Spirit-inspired worship
  • Caring relationships
  • Ecclesial health

As we at Red Clay continue to assess our ministry, discern God’s call, and live faithfully in this new world, I believe that finding ways to focus on these things may help us continue to thrive and to remain a vibrant beacon of hope and love for many decades to come.
