Easter at The Orchard!

Mar 24, 2008

What a weekend at The Orchard!  Wow…  Helicopter Easter Egg Drop packed with thousands of kids and parents….four high impact services launching our new series, “Smudged”…..record weekend attendance……incredible environments… rain on stage…..amazing volunteers who poured tons of heart and soul into creating great experiences……

Ok, you get the idea, right?  It was an absolutely amazing weekend at The Orchard!

What sticks out the most?

Helicopter Easter Egg Drop…..
  Wow.  That was unbelievable!  Our second year doing this and this year’s was BY FAR the best!  The weather leading up to the event was exactly opposite of what we hoped for, but that morning things started looking better and by the time it started, the sun was shining beautifully! 

People…..  Wow, so many people!  Definitely our largest attended weekend ever at The Orchard.  I haven’t received the final numbers yet, but I do know that we had more than 1600 people attend one of four services.  And what was really interesting was that our Saturday services were the highest attended!

Our Team…….  I can’t even begin to describe how proud I am of our team!  Both paid and unpaid.  They were amazing!!  The energy that everyone brought to this weekend was incredible.  The ownership, the excitement, the “whatever it takes” attitude….  It was all over the place. 

Live Rain……  We closed out each service with the song,
“Unwritten” and in the middle of the song had LIVE RAIN pouring down on
stage.  It was awesome!!! 

More later….  Images, thoughts, & video clips.
