It was a great weekend at The Orchard. A surprisingly good turnout on superbowl weekend and Mike and his team did a great job – the place was rockin’! It made it really easy to get up and teach to an excited group – I love that!
I saw new volunteers being trained (in various stages of our reproduction strategy) in Orchard Kids, Welcome Teams, Production… so cool to see new people stepping up all over! I love that our Welcome Teams are having to strategically seat people to make sure we can get folks in.
I met several new families brand new to The Orchard this weekend- all of whom were invited by friends. One family was invited by their neighbor, whose first week was two weeks ago. They in turn were invited by a co-worker, whose first time was Christmas Eve! You gotta love that kind of word-of-mouth enthusiasm – the simple strategy of people inviting their friends.
You can listen to the weekend here (or will be able to shortly :).
