This is the last in a series of updates for churches participating in the Operation Inasmuch across North Carolina April 24 and May 1.

The May 8 issue of the Biblical Recorder will feature stories and photos of the largest ministry event in North Carolina.

Where you should be in your preparations as of April 10:
  • List of projects and project leaders should already be in hands of members.
  • Your sign-up period in which members volunteer for their top three choices in hands-on projects should be underway.
  • Planning team assigns volunteers according to needs for each project and posts sign-ups in prominent places in church. Make sure church secretary has an updated copy of the master list.
  • Gather T-shirt sizes and quantities from volunteers as they sign up (deadline for T-shirt orders April 12).
  • Keep congregation posted on progress of sign-ups and specific needs.
  • Conduct project leaders’ (PL) meeting next week:
    • provide PLs with all information they need;
    • provide PLs with updated list of volunteers;
    • recast the Inasmuch vision your church has;
    • finalize plans for pre-event gathering (Sat AM);
    • give last-minute instructions;
    • gather volunteers into project groups;
    • pastor/Leader to give talk reminding everyone the “WHY” of Operation Inasmuch.
  • Finalize plans for post-event celebration (Sunday AM or PM):
    • show PowerPoint of photos of Inasmuch event;
    • give volunteers opportunities to share what they did and what it meant; and
    • give God the glory!!
