11. I learned that…It’s not rocket science.
Starting another service isn’t rocket science. It’s work, commitment, creativity, empowering others, and prayer. Chances are there are people in your congregation right now who would love to help get one started, or support it when it is.
And it’s not rocket science on how to connect with people. We know. They’re our neighbourhood.
If our neighbourhood is Seniors, then start a Senior friendly ministry – or find a way to include them in worship. I know shut-in 92 year olds with iPads. WebCast ’em Communion. If our neighbourhood is young families. Think soccer practice, day camps, registrations, crazy schedules and busy parents. Something that might fit them.
Whatever it takes to offer God’s Kingdom. Whatever it takes to invite people to the table. And whatever it is, it can be different to what you’re doing now, and it can be something that will connect to all God’s children around us.
