20 Days Out and all is well…with my soul.

We are 20 days out from our first Easter Service, so this is the time we do several things. How are you coming on your preparation.

1. Post all service times to the community and congregation.

  • Newspapers
  • Billboards
  • Movie theaters
  • Emails
  • Websites
  • You Tube video
  • Blogs
  • Pod cast
  • Text messages
  • Personal business card size invites
  • Small Group newsletters
  • Bulletin theme

2. Confirm with all departments they are on task.

  • Communications – community and congregation
  • Operations – setup, security, food, shuttles, take down
  • Worship Team – main campus, regional campuses, sunrise services
  • Children’s Team – 10 of 13 services
  • Youth Team – no services so that youth can w0rship with their parents/friends
  • ASL interpretation – 3 of 13 services
  • I.T. – database for 20,000+ responses that we know are coming
  • Follow-up Team – salvation’s, next steps, care and concern, etc…
  • Campus Ministry Team – traffic, greeters, ushers, etc…
  • Finance Team – budget confirmed
  • Pastoral Care – emergency plan
  • Audio/Visual – all services, all locations
  • Decorations – main campus and sunrise services
  • Baptism – 8 of 13 services staffed
  • Bookstore – open 10 of 13 services

3. Enlist additional ministry partners to serve

  • Thousands of volunteers (you set your number) come together each year to make Easter at a great celebration. Play a part in what God does this year by volunteering your time. Look for the sign-up in the bulletin this weekend!
  • Volunteers are needed in Traffic Control, Greeting, Ushering, Campus Cleaning, Health Care, and at the Information Table (membership required). (Choose your own areas of need.)
  • Volunteer Orientation Breakfast (select a time/date), we’ll be hosting a Volunteer Orientation Breakfast for everyone who would like to serve.
    If you are unable to make it to the orientation, we’d still love to have you on the team! Show up 45 minutes before the service begins and sign-in at our volunteer station across from (you set location). We’ll find a place for you!
