In the fall of 2017, our staff decided to invite Dr. Randy Millwood from our BCMD staff to help us determine how we might help Redland to become a more efficient tool for furthering God’s kingdom. Randy suggested the Church Health Assessment—a study he and other faculty of New Orleans Seminary had developed a few years back. We liked that idea so we set the dates. We enlisted the respondents (30 Redlanders carefully chosen to reflect the age, gender, marital status, and length of church membership tenure, etc. of our church). The idea was to assemble a “little Redland” to help us get a picture of the “bigger Redland. The surveys were carefully tabulated, and on April 7 about 60 Redlanders gathered to hear the results and to brainstorm some ways we could use the results.
Here are a couple things the survey revealed:
1.) We have a very healthy church.
2.) The results reflected the vision focus for 2018—our need to do a better job of connecting with each other and the lost in our community.
Our staff will with Randy to get suggestions on next steps, and continues to review the results. We want to accomplish those goals with you, not for you.
Copies of the results were sent out attached to an e-mail and are also available on the table in the back of the Sanctuary, or contact the church office for a copy.
Due to inclement weather conditions, Redland Baptist Church has cancelled ALL activities on Wednesday, March 21, 2018. The Church Office is also closed.
Stay safe and warm inside!
Redland’s Healthy Church Workshop, facilitated by Randy Millwood from the BCMD will be Saturday, April 7. A continental breakfast with coffee is served at 8:15am, the workshop starts at 8:45am in the Sanctuary and will conclude by 1pm. Everyone is invited and childcare (birth-Grade 5) is available by RSVP to Peggy Peek.
The first half of our time together will be spent reviewing the results of our recent Healthy Church Assessment, taken by a cross-section of Redland’s members (determined by age, gender, marital status, ministry involvement, and length of church membership tenure) earlier this year in January. This will be an overview of our church health, highlighting areas where we are strong and areas that could use some extra attention.
The second half of the workshop will be for collaborative discussion, discernment, fellowship, and planning to develop strategies for RBC’s continued health. This workshop is for everyone! We look forward to seeing you here.
