I. Leadership Mosaic discussion
Pg. 20 - Which leader do you see yourself as?
Pg. 37 - Values vs. Conviction
II. Christmas Eve - reflection and evaluation
Wins + things that went well:
-Length of service was great
-Had its own feel, unique from COTM
-Liturgy and candle instructions
-1100 people in the auditorium (good to see how it worked and that we can get that many people there)
-Very easy to invite people to the service
-Music in the lobby with instruments and carolers
Challenges + things to consider for next year:
-Some complaints that music was too loud
-Candles - to do or not to do next year? Is the tradition worth it?
-What can we do more to build expectation and momentum leading up to Christmas season? Both in communications and in church discipleship during Advent season.
-More tools for inviting and communication outside of social media and Sunday announcements?
-Need to keep in mind that people will show up an hour in advance - clear stage and be done with run through.
-Determining what KiDS environments will look like for next year. 2 services would help recruit volunteers more.
