Meanwhile, back on the Ranch

When I first started blogging 3 years ago, I had 1 entry per week.  I would give the membership a summary of everything that was going on behind-the-scenes at the church.  It was a great opportunity for everyone to see “the workings”.  I have neglected this whole side of blogging and am committing to getting back to it (ever so often).

Here is a basic week at PromiseLand San Marcos:

  • Mondays – The staff takes the day off!  We are a little tired from an intensive weekend schedule.
  • Tuesdays –  These mornings are  our Mondays.  For the first 4 hours of the day, we are returning emails, counting offering, logging guests into the system, reading over prayer cards, meeting to discuss the past weekend.  Jacob and I go over everything from songs sung, people we DIDN’T see, facility problems, baptisms, healings, sermons, you get the picture.  I also meet with Wynnel and we talk about all the people that are sick, having babies,  missing, new, need a PromiseGroup, need help, etc.  Tuesday evenings I usually stay late to meet with those that want to meet but can’t during the day.
  • San Marcos Ministers Association – Today, I meet with this group to discuss the issues of SM.  There are about 15 churches that participate in this meeting.  I am the Vice President!  Just call me Dick Chenney.  Well….maybe not.  We have lunch at CTMC on the second Tuesday of the month.
  • Wednesdays – Dan is cranking away at the Youth Service (along with Harry).  We have 2pm staff meeting with all 9 of our full and part-time staff.  Come join us sometime!  We have a lot of fun.
  • Thursdays – I sequester myself somewhere off campus.  I go to a library, coffee shop or elsewhere quite to study/prepare for the weekend’s message.  I usually check my messages once just to make sure nothing big is going on.  But other than that, I communicating with God only.  If I don’t return an email or phone call on Thursdays, you will know why.
  • Fridays – We are meeting with people, getting the bulletins ready, finishing song choices for the weekend, finishing sermon notes,
  • Saturday – We get here around 4pm, have church, leave around 8pm
  • Sunday  – We get here around 7am, have 2 churches, leave around 1pm.
