Vision 2020 Appeal
Vision 2020 Update - August 2019
Have you noticed the newly resealed and relined parking lot? The lot was resurfaced a few years ago as part of the previous mission appeal. Over time, wear and weather caused deterioration that needed to be addressed. Vision 2020 gifts ($10,250) were utilized to give the lot new life.
The two main bathrooms need remodeling. You may have noticed that the women’s bathroom is missing some floor tile as a result of an emergency sewer repair. Bathroom remodeling was one of the property projects identified for Vision 2020 funding. The remodeling initiative was a carryover from our previous Mission Appeal. Tom and his team will be moving forward with a plan and bids. Stay tuned for news on this project. This project has been moved to Fall due to limits of Vision 2020 funds.
Repositioning for Growth
The Vision 2020 Leadership Team submitted a grant request to the Metropolitan Chicago Synod Mission Board. We recently received notice that we have been awarded $8000 to support the implementation of the Equipping Ministry at CVLC.
Equipping Ministry Coordinator
The Council recently approved the introduction of an Equipping Ministry at Christus Victor. You might look at this as coordination of volunteers for our many programs. However, it is much more than that. The goal of the Equipping Ministry is to provide our youth and adults with the ability to identify their spiritual gifts and interests and then match those gifts with volunteer and service opportunities in the church and community. The Job Description can be found on the Welcome Desk and on our website: https://cvlutheran.org/employment For more information, please contact Stefany Courier or Pastor Stefan.
Youth Ministry Director
The Youth Ministry Director directs and leads youth programming for Middle and High School age youth. He/She will seek to foster the Christian community through building relationships with young people that strengthen their commitment to the church and grow in their faith. For more information, please contact: Stefany Courier or Pastor Linda.
The Local/Global Outreach team recommended giving $3000 to the CVLC Youth Mission Trip. This gift was approved by the Church Council and transferred to the Youth account in June.
Vision 2020 was created as a means to fund needed property enhancements and growth opportunities that can not be supported by the current budget. In addition, 10% of gifts are allocated for Local/Global Outreach.
Thank you for your generosity towards the Vision 2020 Mission Plan. If you made a commitment, we are counting on your continued support as we focus on Phase 2 goals. If you did not make a commitment, it is not too late to make a weekly, monthly, or annual commitment. Individual gifts are also welcome at any time by using the blue envelopes located in the pew pockets. *Please consider your Vision 2020 gifts as an addition to your regular weekly gifts that support operations and ministries.
