We are in full fledged hair on fire mode with the church plant.
Short week trying to get everything done before our first preview service, which means we are buying stuff left and right.
I don’t know about you, but for me that means Amazon. Could I find a better price at a brick and mortar store? Or some cheap toys at a second hand store? Yes and Yes. But do I want to spend time looking and would I really want to drop my kid off at a nursery where the majority of stuff is used?
So I’m going through and adding things to my cart, lots of basics and necessities. Now we have the budget for this, but I’m cheap and I’m all about including more people so that shopping cart was changed to a wish list/gift registry.
Several years ago my family employed the Amazon Wish List for Christmas and birthdays and we haven’t looked back.
I’m doing the same thing with this wish list for Movement Church. Now I’m letting people know about this super convenient way to contribute. They purchase the item, have it shipped to us with a simple click, and the item is removed from the list to prevent duplicates.
I’ve heard of plants having a shower for the kids ministry, which is a good idea but I don’t want to try to plan an event in November/December and 2014 is going to be crazy as we prepare to launch. So I’m sure this isn’t an original idea, but I like the idea of leveraging such a universal service.
So steal that idea. Obviously I’m planting but I think it would work great in existing churches as you look to upgrade the sound system or get some stuff for students and kids.
And if you are so inclined would you mind buying us some diapers, a foldable table or any of the numerous things on our wish list?
As always, Thanks.
