To lead us into the 21st century, HRC has adopted the following vision statement, which now becomes our preferred picture for the future of our congregation. It also will give you specific steps in how we intend to reach our goals.
It is the vision of the Hudsonville Reformed Church to reflect accurately the person of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, to those in our community and beyond, especially those in our community who know Him but are separated from the church. Therefore, empowered by the Holy Sprit:
We intentionally express and nurture our relationship to Christ thorough worship, learning and service in an environment of caring and celebration.
We continue to be re-formed by our knowledge of Jesus Christ through His word, the Bible, which guides all of our decisions.
We are committed to disciplined lives of prayer, study and application of His Word, and use of the gifts received from Him.
To enable us to put this vision statement into action we have formed Ministry Teams. What follows are the purpose statement of each of those teams.
Youth Ministry Team - Hudsonville Reformed Church Youth ministry encourages youth to be rooted in Christ where they are taught to seek God's will, grow in their faith and live for Christ by branching out to their community.
Worship Ministry Team - Coordinate all aspects of our worship around the Word of God so that it provides an environment in which all generations experience a unified, imaginative, seeker friendly, celebrative worship, so that the name of Jesus is glorified and God’s people experience His presence.
