weekend in review: This weekend was our final preview service for the Grove. It was such a great weekend. For me, I was just exhausted because I was sick last week. It was weird to be so excited, but also so tired. Went well though and there was, again, about 10 new families there. A bunch of students from the youth ministry that I used to lead came by too. Really great to see them.
on my list this week: Trying to help have the rest of our carts set up and make our set-up/tear-down system work as efficiently as possible. It’s so funny to be pushing on this when our “official” start is not even until this weekend. Also, I am trying to work out ahead on some possible leadership teams for the Grove and for my preaching schedule.
current writing: sermons, systems and emails. We’re trying to have written down everything we are doing so that it goes smoothly.
culture that’s caught me: No kidding at all – a woman called me because she had heard about the Grove and she said she would like to check us out but she wanted to make sure we had a sewing group. A sewing group was her make-it-or-break-it issue for a church. A sewing group.
how i’m feeling about this week: Really good. I’m hopeful!
