WHY WE'RE MAKING THESE CALLS:
As we face this unprecedented health crisis, we know that God is still sovereign and He loves us. We are committed to gathering, although "gathering" will look different over the coming months. We want to love and care for one another, continue to grow as disciples of Jesus and be adaptable as things continue to change.
HOW TO EXPLAIN THIS CALL TO MEMBERS:
(please note that you're welcome to use your own words - but it's important that you manage people's expectations in this phone call so they're not caught off guard when you ask them a bunch of quite specific questions)
Hey ... ,
I'm calling because I've volunteered (along with a few others at church) to assist in calling all of the Members of Grace City this week. The purpose of this call is to see how you're going in the current circumstances and to make sure that we're doing everything we can do care for each other as a church community.
So, I want to hear how you're going but I also want to ask some specific questions to make sure we know how best to care for you, as well as give you the opportunity to put your hand up to care for others.
Are you happy for me to jump in with some questions?
