We had a terrific kickoff Sunday yesterday – a beautiful service, a great launch of the strategic plan, a kickoff of adult enrichment, church school and Servants, Family Promise moved into the building! Hugs were abundant, friends were caught up with, pictures were taken, directories handed out, ice cream eaten, games played!
As we think about who we will be in the future, we want to think about what we do well now and what might change. Here is an article by a local Chicago pastor who suggests a few new ideas for what a Kickoff Sunday could look like in church (take special note of “Jesus has left the building” – we are planning something like that in November!).
