Who We Are

Hosanna! is:

Biblical.           Hebrews 4:12, Psalm 119:105, 2 Timothy 3:16-17

  1. Each member will feel comfortable using the Bible for devotion, reference, study, and sharing
  1. Promote that the Bible is the Living Word of God which is the truth for all generations.
  1. The Bible is the roadmap for our lives, to lead us through this life to our eternal home.

Missional.       Colossians 3:17, Matthew 25:40, Luke 4:18

  1. We are to bring the hope of Jesus to others.
  1. We are blessed to be a blessing to others.
  1. Whatever we do to the least (those without) and the last (those who are marginalized) of these our brothers and sisters in Christ, we do for/to Jesus.

Evangelical.   Luke 19:10, 1 Peter 3:15, Acts 1:8         

  1. We value hospitality evangelism as we both invite and welcome others to our Christian family.
  1. Just as Jesus came to save and serve the lost we should have a passion to reach out to those who need Jesus in their lives.
  1. We should always be ready and unapologetically willing to share our personal stories of hope with others.

Lutheran.        John 3:33-36, Acts 15:11, 1 Peter 2:9

  1. Worship the triune God as described in the Apostles Creed.
  1. Eternally thankful that we are saved through grace in faith in Jesus Christ.
  1. Value that we are all members of the priesthood of believers.

What is Hosanna!'s goal since a church is people, not a building?

For all to be fully committed disciples of Jesus Christ.  It’s not enough to follow; we must also continue to hunger and thirst for righteousness sake and be able to share Jesus with others, too, in both words and deeds.

By being fully committed disciples of Jesus Christ, we will connect with Christ, and one another, and those in need.

Ministry Teams, Council and Organizational Structure

Hosanna!'s many activities, groups, events and programs are organized into Ministry Teams, each responsible for a different area of ministry and grouped under the elements of our Vision statement. We have great volunteer leaders and team members who are filled with creativity and passion! (Just a side note, you can be a part of it too!)

There are 6 teams that represent the "Connected With Christ" element: Adult Discipleship; Youth; Children & Family; Preschool; Worship; and Music. Under "Connected With One Another" there are: Evangelism; Fellowship; and Communications. Supporting "Connected With Those In Need" we have: Member Prayer & Care; and Outreach. And there are 4 important teams we have included in a Congregation Support category: Property; Technology; Media; and Stewardship & Finance.

Each Team has one or more volunteer Key Leader(s), an assigned Church Staff Resource contact, a Congregational Council representative and a core circle of volunteers who direct the efforts of the Team. Each Team is accountable to the guiding mission and vision of Hosanna! through their Council representative, but are empowered to creatively, cooperatively and energetically accomplish their respective goals.

With the exception of Jesus Himself, we know that no human is perfect.  But as disciples, Christ teaches us that each day we are to grow closer to Him than the day before. Hosanna!'s leaders are to be examples and model Christ-like qualities to those in the church and in their daily lives. Download a copy of Hosanna!'s Leadership Guidelines for more info.
