Practical Stuff for Church Leaders

Only in Indiana

Only in Indiana do people still go to church in a snow storm!

It started snowing on Saturday afternoon and hasn't let up. By the time the first Saturday service started, there was already several inches on the ground and the roads were treacherous. It continued over night with several additional inches. There was already 6 to 10 inches on the ground by mid-morning on Sunday. Yet people kept coming!

Our weekend attendance for week four of the 24 series ended at 4851 in the middle of a snow storm--which is only a 20% drop from our recent average.

Someone once said that only sissies do ministry in the sun belt. (Of course, it should be noted the person who said that is now moving to the sun belt. Hmmm.)
