VISION22 Summer Sermon Series

Sermon Series Note:

After a very long history and legacy of faithful ministry in our neighborhood of Laketown Township, Gibson Church has been on a 2-year expedition with the Center for Church Renewal seeking together our Spirit-discerned, God-preferred future. On Sunday, July 17, 2022 we held a very special fellowship and worship event where we began to unfurl a vision we have discerned the Spirit leading us to. We are excited and expectant of what God has in store for Gibson Church, and for Laketown, our neighborhood, and beyond as we live into God’s mission in our world in our particular context in Laketown. We are Gibson Church. We are For God. For People. For Laketown. Join us the rest of the summer as we continue to unpack, pray, and live into a fresh vision for Gibson Church for our time and place! We’d love to have you join us on mission for God, and to experience with us how the Spirit is moving in and through us for the sake of the Gospel, for the Kingdom, for our neighbor, for Jesus’ name and for his fame, and for the glory of God!

Gibson Church is a warm, friendly, inviting, enfolding, loving, and hospitable community. We gather for coffee and homemade baked treats after our morning worship services. We love to gather and spend time together, often sharing a meal or other special activity. These special family fellowship times are planned throughout the year and enjoyed by all who attend.
