VIBRANT FAITH

WHAT IS VIBRANT FAITH? Council and Staff have started work with Vibrant Faith and Jim Ladoux, our Coach. Jim will help us better live out our core values and express them in a way that matters more deeply – for all FLC members, and for those we strive to reach, welcome, help and have join us in the journey. What are our strengths? What are our blind spots and shortcomings? Jim will be an objective set of eyes to help us build on our strengths and address our weaknesses, honestly and for the sake of what God wants to do for us and through us at First Lutheran.  Click here for more information about Jim and Vibrant Faith.
