Hello First Methodist!
Next Sunday, September 18th, is Back to Church Sunday! We've had a great summer (hot, but great!), but now fall is almost here and that's the time to get back on schedule at church. I'm hoping to see all you in your places this Sunday!
This week I'm going to send out a daily email to you giving you ways to prepare for Back2Church Sunday! So here goes!
Back2Church idea #1: Invite someone to church this coming Sunday.
Did you know that 82% of people would consider going to church if asked? (according to Tom Rainer's book, The Unchurched Next Door.)
Who can you invite? Who will you see in the grocery store? Who will you talk to on the telephone? Perhaps a simple invitation could be the beginning of their lives being changed forever by encountering Christ. Let's all invite at least one person to church this Sunday!
Look for Idea #2 tomorrow!
