On Easter this year we did something different. We didn‘t do anyting different. No Easter play, no choir robes, no lillies, just our normal service. I told our over 20 1st time guest and dozens of occasionaly attenders why. “I want you to see what this church is all about each week in the hope that you’ll come back.” I continued, “We’re not just going to do a great show on Easter and let you be disappointed next time you’re here! The same music, teaching style and welcoming atmosphere will be here every time you come.”
I hope this approach also made out members and regular attenders feel encouraged. They know that any week they invite their friends to church that they can expect a few things to happen.
- Their friends will be made to feel welcomed
- The music will be off the chain!
- The teaching will apply to their lives.
- It will NOT be boring. (We use creative methods and humor.)
- God will meet with them.
Do you clearly communicate to your friends and family what they can expect when they come to church? Can they look at your life and know what to expect from Christianity. Talk to people. You’ll be very surprised at what they think is going to happen if they follow God.
