Tonight we continue on in our new student series, Don’t Be A Hater, which means we are officially in the thick of things. Opening weekend was a week away, now it’s time to take what we’ve learned and apply it to what we do. There is a lot you learn from an opening weekend, some lessons are pretty general like how well prepared are your volunteers, how do you greet students, touch base with parents, etc. But the most important thing you can learn from an opening weekend is:
The Status Of Your Heart
If your heart is dead, you need to sit down with your pastor, but if you feel like something isn’t right it’s important to take the next days to examine it’s status. Your heart has been tested and if you are feeling totally drained probably the best thing to do is take some quiet time with God. Try to set yourself up on a mini retreat. If you feel highly motivated it’s good to take that energy and share the wins and the highs with your leaders. You’ll want to keep them excited and pump.
