As summer starts, it’s a good time to consider getting some things started now so they are in full swing by fall and the inaugural occupancy of the new facility. I have listed some things for which CTK could really use some prayer and assistance:
•It would be great to have 6 new small groups started by Sunday September 6th. It’s great that you may want to join one, but we need at least 6 more leaders to step up to the plate and lead one. Do you need training? That’s cool. Let’s chat. Do you need a place to have it, because you’d rather teach it than host it? That’s cool. Let’s chat. Want to discuss options or studies or curriculum? I’m all over it. I have way too many people asking to be a part of a small group and not enough options to send them. Would you pray about your potential role in leading a small group? Sweet.
•Before we move into the new facility, I’d like us to ramp up the usher ministry by 75%. Devin is doing a great job, but when we move in, we need more servants helping. We’ll have more visitors and more questions and more people to direct to more locations and more money and more counting and more hospitality and more opportunities for ministry. Why don’t we prepare now? Let’s build the usher team to 10 persons by August 23rd, have some training BBQs in September, and be ready to rock when we move in by fall. Any takers?
•Finally, I’d like to talk to those of you with the gift of hospitality and the ability to follow up on our MANY visitors. This is a ripe ministry to be involved in. Frank and his team are doing a good job, but they need more help, and we need to give it some fresh vision and thought prior to moving into the new facility. What if we had four teams of two persons each? That’s just eight persons more than we have now. That way, every week, two of you could go bonkers to love and care and follow up on these dear people who come to CTK to meet us and discover more about us. Just think, 8 people more, and we can NAIL this ministry... Any takers?
Summer isn’t always a great time to kick stuff off, but it is a good time to pray, to talk, to dream, and to prepare for the fall--- and to prepare for everything God has for us in the future. Do you have a ministry? Great! Keep at it. But if you don’t currently have a place to serve, and one of these areas is in line with your talents and gifting, let’s talk. A bright new different future awaits us. Let’s get in line to serve the King.
