1. Do not panic. This is not the end of the world. It happens in every church, even the great ones.
2. Give thanks. God can use this for your good and His glory if your team handles it well.
3. Pray. Seek the Lord. It’s His church, and He is the operator (Matt. 16:18). Ask what He wants you to do.
4. Investigate. See if you can find out the problem. If your community is on the decline and the economy is headed south or people are upset at something and are dropping out, then at least you know what you’re dealing with.
The tough part is when you cannot find a reason.
