Our Sunday School Director, Jeff Yates has challenged us for several weeks to reach an attendance of 150 in Sunday School/Small Groups. This goal is attainable not just for one week but as a foundation for growth.
So how do we do it?
It’s up to you! The first question is, “Do YOU really want to average an attendance of 150?” And then the question becomes, “Are YOU willing to make the necessary changes for this to happen?” We are organized for the exact number we have currently attending.
Here are several actions we can take to increase our Sunday School attendance.
- Pray… for the following actions, leaders, members, and guests.
- Invite people and make contacts. To increase attendance by 10 involves 70-100 additional contacts.
- Start new classes. They grow faster than existing classes. We currently have 6 adult classes, 1 college/career class, 2 high school classes, 2 children classes, 2 preschool classes, and 2 off-campus classes. (total=15)
One of our adult classes and the college/career class should multiply. Another children’s class needs to be added. We need a singles class (older & younger), couples class, mid-week class, and one more off campus class.
The obstacle to starting these classes is not a leader, or space, but a core group to move from their comfort zone and step up. (Read more at www.tinyurl.com/TRC-10steps)
Your answer to the two questions above will reveal whether or not we will rise to the challenge. It’s up to you. Let’s get started!
