Here’s our music setlist from Sunday:

The Kitchen is the place where we grow together. It’s the place where we sit down at the table and have family talks, share meals together and share accountability together. It’s the place of community. We want everyone at the Orchard to be taking steps toward the kitchen. The primary way this happens is through small groups.

Are you part of a small group?

Blown Away! by orchardblog

Wow – my first post on the Orchard Blog… drumroll please 🙂 Seriously, this is Chris Bell, and I am glad to be part of the Orchard team. I have been blown away by The Orchard’s response to our “R&R” request! Don’t know what “R&R” is? Read on!

In just four and half short weeks, we are going to launch our third service, which will be on Saturday nights. Beginning on Saturday, October 20th, at 5pm, we are going to begin offering the same great service experience on Saturday nights that we currently offer on Sunday mornings (at 9:00 and 10:45). But, in order to serve the same great coffee, welcome people with the same level of excellence, and minister to all of the kids in the same high-quality manner, we realized we were going to need LOTS of new volunteers.

So, we began asking our current volunteers to step forward and commit to serving ONE SATURDAY NIGHT a month for 6 months. To date, over 120 volunteers have agreed to do just that!!! But we realized that this was only a short-term solution. It would allow us to begin Saturday nights with experienced, qualified volunteers, but unless we recruited and reproduced ourselves into brand new volunteers, we would all hit the wall, and burn out hard!

So we have challenged all of our people to “R&R” – Recruit one new volunteer in September, and Reproduce themselves in that volunteer in October, November, and December.

Why am I blown away? Besides the 120 current volunteers that have agreed to serve one Sat night a month for six months, we have had over 100 new volunteers agree to begin serving in various ministries to help us accomplish our mission of Leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ! Keep it up Orchard church family – your R&R is blowing me away! Great job!
