First a reminder: there will be no leadership meeting this Wednesday night because of the massive Back to School outreach that our church is hosting. Directors will find their packets on the front row with your name on the envelope. Please check in with your teachers and distribute the guest information for follow up.
Please plan to attend the Back to School rally tonight (Wednesday 8/15 at 7pm). It will be a fun and energetic service that targets students, but it will be a tremendous opportunity to connect with families who may not be associated with a church family of their own. Look for folks you don’t know, and make a connection. Don’t be afraid to invite someone to come back on Sunday for worship, or even to come check out your small group SS class. An invitation in that context will communicate value, and express our desire for new folks to come and find a place to belong.
When you get a moment, check out this short article titled, “Are You a Welcoming Church”. It has some great questions and points to consider.
Several of the points raised are areas we are working to immediately improve on, others we need to, but haven’t gotten to yet. Can you have an impact on any of these areas that will make us a more welcoming church? What would you add to the list?
Thanks for your commitment to the values we share which make Sunday School W.O.R.K.!
