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
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.
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.
