As our church is working on discerning their vision and mission, we have felt led to get some input from the community. We want to know what others think about the needs in our midst, what they feel about the church's role in our community, and what they might like to offer to help meet those needs.
So our grand idea was to have a phone bank.
We created a script.
We got some volunteers.
We put a notice in the paper that we would be calling folks.
We organized some yummy treats.
And then we got together to actually do it.
Our numbers were small, but mighty.
We practiced our phone calls with one another, edited our script, divided up the phone book for our community and our list of inactive/less active members, and set to work.
*ring, ring* = voicemail
*ring, ring* = no answer
*do, do, do* = this number has been disconnected.
It's quite a journey!!!
