CG MIDTOWN 2018 VISION

3x3x3

In the beginning of 2018, Jim Matthies, Interim Lead Pastor at CG Midtown, shared our vision for 2018 called 3x3x3.

The goal of 3x3x3 is to orient CG Midtown around three components, that will guide us as we journey towards greater Interdependence. Within these 3 components are 3 new activities that we will initiate in the next 3 quarters of 2018. 

INTERDEPENDENCE

The Apostle Paul speaks about interdependence in 1 Corinthians 12 when he provides an aspect of God’s vision for the church. For Paul, everyone has a role to play in the church when we each discover and use our spiritual gifts (12:4-20).  Additionally, everyone matters in the church, whether in seasons of suffering or joy (12:26).
