Vision Planning


Dear Mellingers’ Member,


In an effort to review our mission and vision for the future of Mellingers Lutheran Church, a Vision Planning Committee has been formed and challenged with the task of planning, gathering information, and using this information to plan long term goals for our congregation.   We need and want input from everyone at Mellingers.  The team has created a short questionnaire to solicit opinions and invoke thoughts and ideas to help direct this committee and to assist us in forming goals and strategies for the next five years and beyond.  Your opinion DOES matter.


Your responses can be anonymous, or if you choose, include your name and contact information and we will update this information for the church records.  The information you share and comments you provide will be shared only with members of the Vision Planning Committee.  If you like, you are welcome to contact any member of the committee to offer additional thoughts and suggestions about Mellingers vision for the future.


The Vision Planning Committee will host an Open House on Sunday, March 15 from 3:00 – 5:00 PM in the church social hall.  Representatives from all committees in the church will be available at various stations around the social hall area.  We encourage you to come and learn more about the church and the functions of various committees, as well as share YOUR ideas for the future of Mellingers Lutheran Church.


In addition to the survey, you will find enclosed a list of names and contact information of all members of the Vision Planning Committee, a document listing suggested areas of planning, along with a return envelope.  Please complete the questionnaire and return it to the church via mail, email, or a secure box marked “Vision Planning” located in the narthex of the church.  We request each member of the household complete their own questionnaire.  You can obtain additional copies by calling or emailing the church office.  The survey will also be available on the Mellingers Lutheran Church website and Facebook page. 


We sincerely thank you for your input and support of this Vision Planning Committee.  Your input will help guide the vision of Mellingers.  Please feel free to contact any committee member with any questions you may have.
