๏ Make the church more inviting and receptive to families with children. ๏ Enhance our identity messages, materials, and methods to communicate better to those outside our congregation what is special about Ravensworth and how through us God can make a difference in their lives and the lives of others. ๏ Reach out “inside” to connect better with and retain existing members and long-term visitors.
