Privileges/Responsibilities

To reflect and respond to our church and community needs, to envision and evaluate  our church's goals and ministries and to gather and share data/information that may serve the goals and vision of the Lindsay united Methodist Church in relation to our 'Mission Statement', our 'Membership Covenant' and the guidance and growth of our church's PERSONNEL, PROGRAM and PROPERTY essentials for spiritual and missional growth.

 

Our Mission Statement

The mission of the Lindsay United Methodist Church

Is to glorify God through faithful discipleship to Jesus Christ and loving service to all,        

So that everyone may hear the good news,

Respond to God's offer of salvation and

Become responsible Christian disciples

Supporting the mission of the United Methodist Church

 

Our Church Motto

"A Community Church with a Global Mission"

The Vision Team, elected by our Church Council, is given great opportunity, privilege and responsibility in guiding the goals and visions of our local church's mission and ministry.  These leadership roles are given express supervision over the PERSONNEL, PROGRAM and PROPERTY of the Lindsay United Methodist Church through the United Methodist Church Discipline for our mission and ministry development and growth.  These leadership responsibilities need consistent, supportive and reflective communications among themselves to assist our local church in fulfilling the goals and inspiring the visions for expanded ministry in our congregation, community and creation.

Regularly scheduled Church Council sessions and/or other committee/team meetings demand focus upon the immediate needs, emergency occasions and short-term goals that routinely come before their respective areas of leadership and oversight.  Hence, these servant leaders of specific committee responsibilities related to personnel, program and property issues do not have the opportunity to reflect upon long-range goals, needs or interests at regularly scheduled meetings except through ad hoc conversations or individual Visits. 

 

The Vision Team will provide the occasion, forum and opportunity for the above servant leaders to meet quarterly to reflect upon their individual leadership role and how it relates to specific needs of the church in the areas of Personnel, Program and property.  This forum encourages these leaders to become more familiar with one another's leadership responsibilities as well as explore, envision and encourage the goals of our church's 'Mission Statement' and 'Membership Covenant' for expanded ministry.

 

The Vision Team shall be convened or led by the Church lay Leader.  The lay leader shall prepare an agenda for the quarterly session.  Each session shall begin with a brief devotion (Scripture, Prayer, Reflection) to assist the Vision team members to reflect and focus upon our Christian discipleship, our Mission Statement and our Membership Covenant in our witness, work and worship of Christ, our lord.

 

Vision Team Guidelines and Goals

  • Annual Conference Dates

    In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, changes to the format and schedule of the 2020 Oklahoma Annual Conference were necessary. Annual Conference will be held November 20-21 at OKC- Church of the Servant. 

  • Special Offering for Annual Conference

    This year’s Conference offering will go in support of our Disaster Response efforts currently working largely in the north-eastern quadrant of our state. The result of the extensive flooding events in 2019, plus a few tornadoes, Oklahoma is once again rising to the task of restoring some 1,200 families to dry and safe homes. UMCOR is supporting us as always, but the funding they are able to give is substantially down from previous disasters, due to many other events that require their assistance. Our staff is hard at work case managing the affected families and volunteers are already signing up to help. But, to help them all, they will need further assistance!

  • Teacher Appreciation Lunch

    As teachers and students prepare to begin the 2020-2021 school year, we (the Lindsay United Methodist Church) will be providing a catered lunch for the Lindsay Public School faculty on Tuesday, August 11th. We do this each year but this year it will be catered and take place at the Lindsay Public School Cafeteria. Lunch will include: a Croissant sandwich, individual bag of chips, pickle spear, cookie and a bottle of water. 
    If you would like to donate toward the cost of this meal, please mail your donation to the church. For more information call the church office.
