What shall we call our new church?

Noey
With the most excellent news that the Sands SDA Church will finally be moving to a new location, I would like to solicit suggestions for our church's new name. This would be an unofficial poll but would certainly take the suggestions to church leadership for consideration.

The new church would be located near the Green St area of High Wycombe - Victoria Street - ans is within a mile of the town centre

Please post your suggestions here.

How about the 'Hand of hope' church, if might be a bit too positive for Wycombe. Or

How about 'Victory in Christ' church at Victoria street again a bit too positive for Wycombe? Or
'
How about the church of 'Abounding Love and hope'? or

Sands II?

Why do we need to call it something other than Sands SDA church?

Well I think it needs to reflect our mission and purpose, and its not really in the Sands area anymore so probably need to reflect its location. I think whats important is that its members take ownership and be a genuine part of this transition so this may go a little way to this. maybe...

Following our Board Meeting this afternoon, we would like to put some more effort into the renaming of our church as well as formulating a mission statement so put your thinking caps on and lets draw up a short list to present to the church. All ideas welcome.

Does make it a bit long winded but seems to be the general concensus.

hate to be negative, but i don't think it's much of a community church.  cant even treat its own members with respect!

I think that is where we as a church needs to work harder. What I wouldn't like to see is those issues and negatives carried across to our new location. A new location gives us the chance to draw a line in all that has gone on, ask for forgiveness, accept forgiveness and move into a new community for the community with the diversity and unity God expects of us.

Easy godseeker.....lol
Remember a church is not the building or the four walls, it is the complete congregation that makes up a
church, which deems respect from everyone.
