"excel in this grace of giving" (2 Cor. 8:7)

Task Completed

Programme Checklist

Finish well, says Paul, matching your willingness with completion (2 Cor. 8:11). Sound advice! The hard work of planning is over, so make it count by excellent delivery. Our giving is an act of worship that we teach in our worship, so we honour God and our time and effort with the best we can do.
Make use of the comprehensive checklist (in preparation) to review the core elements of the programme and those optional extras that you have chosen. Then, in the planning group, review the practicalities of delivering each element. Are the children's leaders good to go? Do those reading the bible and praying have the liturgical resources they need? Are the literature packs complete and someone charged with distribution? Pay attention to the details of delivery so that poor performance does not undermine the impact of the programme.
