The Transition Task Force at St. Michael has been working on a new, unified mission statement for the Church, School, and Early Childcare Center. Their recommendation will be coming out soon.
Zechariah talked about the mission of his son, John.
- John would be the first real Prophet of God in over 400 years. A Prophet speaks for God, brings God's Word to His people.
- John would prepare people to meet Jesus, the Promised Savior. John would be the advance man for Jesus, the Son of God.
- John would connect people with Jesus by calling them to repent, to turn back to God and ask Him to forgive them.
The same things need to happen today.
- We need to prepare people to meet Jesus by speaking God's Word to them in a way that they can understand.
- We start by asking God to forgive us and turn our lives around so that we walk with Him in faith.
- Then we can work together to try to connect people with Jesus.
