Thinking Differently

We had a discovery at our staff meeting on Monday. We were going through different issues that we are having right now, and we kept coming to the same conclusion: we have to start thinking differently as a church. We are not the same church that we were 6 months ago. Sudden growth is very nice, but it also causes wrecks if you do not start thinking more strategically. The questions we are having right now are:
  • How do we get these people plugged into small groups quickly?
  • Are we ready for people to jump into serving?
  • How do we stop running out of everything every single Sunday?
  • How are we going to handle Newcomers this Sunday?
  • What are we going to do when we can't put more chairs out?
We kinda thought we knew what we were doing a few months ago. I don't think that's where God wants us to be. We are definitely out of our comfort zone right now!
