Vision of our local church: To become a real, relevant and radical community of faith for Jesus. 1. What is your understanding of being real? (allow each person to give one word that defines real then cell leader gives dictionary definition – actually existing occurring, not artificial, genuine) As a church how are we fulfilling this and what do we need to work on in the future to remain real to each other and our community? 2. What is your understanding of being relevant? (allow each person to give one word that defines relevant then cell leader gives dictionary definition – closely connected or appropriate to the current matter). What are some ideas or suggestions that would enable us to be consistently relevant in the community of Actonville. Discuss in terms of the different religious and cultural groups in Actonville. 3. What is your understanding of being radical? (allow each person to give one word that defines relevant then cell leader gives dictionary definition – departing from tradition, new) What are we doing right and what can we do in the future to remain a radical group of people in terms of the community we serve?
