Much like school, many people take a break from church. It might be during summer when they go out on vacation, or it may be an extended break of years! Perhaps there is someone that has never been. Just like there is a “Back to School” time, let’s take part in a “Back to Church!” time!
“Back to Church Sunday” is a nation-wide event where congregations invite their friends, neighbors, family, co-workers, strangers, etc… to church! This year’s Back to Church Sunday is on September 17!
Let’s try something: take out a 3×5 card (or something else) and write a name down of a person that hasn’t been to church for awhile, or someone that you know doesn’t go to church. Next: pray for that person for a week. Then, invite them to church! You can invite them out for September 17, or don’t wait and invite them to any other Sunday! Let people know that there is a place where they can belong, in spite of where they have been – a place where they can experience God’s love in their life.
Let’s share the Good News! Invite someone to church!
