After 6 months of planning, we completed our mini-series called Dream Team, yesterday.
It all began on Thursday evening with our Dream Team Celebration. This was a party we threw in honor of the 600 people that currently serve at Foothills Community Church. Not everyone could attend, but it was one of the best things we've ever done. It was a time of fun, eating desserts, karaoke, music, testimonies and inspiration.
On Sunday we held a ServeLink in the concourse. The goal was for people to take what they had just learned over the last 2 Sundays and put it into practice. We had tables set up representing different volunteer opportunities. To say it was a smashing success would be an understatement, as 150 new people signed-up to serve on the Dream Team! If you do the math, that means that we increased our volunteer base by 25%!
In addition to that, many people who are already serving will be increasing their amount of time given to serving!
There were some that are still praying which area they will be serving in, so we will have more filter in over the next couple of weeks.
Here is the new culture we are trying to build at Foothills. Up until this point, the question to people was, "Are you serving?" The new question will be, "WHERE are you serving?" The goal is 100% of the people at Foothills to have a place within the church to serve AND to look for additional serving opportunities outside of the Church!
I believe this will help us build the infrastructure to get to the next level.
If you were not at church yesterday, you can still be a part of the Dream Team. Simply fill out our information card on Sunday and check off the box about serving, or do it right now by clicking here.
I just want to thank all of the wonderful people at Foothills that are giving their lives to serving God and others!
