Our Savior Lutheran Church has recently completed a process called "Clearing Our Vision". Under this framework we took time to identify, study, and pray about the Mission and Values to which God is calling us.
We began with a series of small group workshops, open to all members of OSLC, where we collected "data". From there we formed a six person "Mission Vision and Values Working Group" with Pastor Phil as facilitator. The MVV Working Group was tasked with going through the collected data and producing a report that would be brought to the OSLC Council and to the Congregation for discussion. From this emerged a document that was brought to the annual Congregational Meeting on February 17, 2013. The resulting Mission Vision and Values statement was approved by the OSLC membership.
