Bethany’s Mission is to “Pursue & equip families to passionately follow Christ”. So how do we each ‘measure’ whether we are accomplishing our mission? Well, our leadership has put together some ways to evaluate ourselves to see if we each are meeting the mission of our church. Rejoice in areas which you have met; and strive in areas which you are currently lacking. It’s a daily and ongoing process in our spiritual life, but let’s all join together and do our part as we “Pursue & equip families to passionately follow Christ”!
