Nervous about inviting someone to our new Easter series starting April 2nd? Here’s some facts about church attendance and Easter…
- If we invite them, they will come. According to a survey by Thom Rainer, 96 percent of those who don’t attend church would agree to go to a service if invited.
- You can be different. The heartbreaking reality, according to Rainer, is only 2 percent of those who regularly attend church invite someone to go with them.
- Easter is the Super Bowl of the Church. More Americans search for a church that Sunday than any other day of the year besides Christmas.
Here’s some great ways to “break the ice” on the invite…
- Use Facebook and Twitter.
- Use email.
- Use text messaging.
- Write a personal note.
- Invite them to coffee or breakfast before service.
- Invite them to lunch after service.
- Collect on a favor—”Hey remember how you owe me $20? Why not come to church with me Sunday and we’ll call it even!”
Don’t miss this great opportunity to help others understand what Easter is all about and maybe change their lives for eternity!
Easter Series Beginning April 2
About The Series...
Each Spring, even those who don’t usually give Jesus a second thought will at least take notice on Easter of the claim of His resurrection.
As Christians, it’s a great time to take advantage of this attention to be both willing and able to explain to our friends the significance of this holiday. After all, the Bible say’s that Easter is the heart of Christianity… “And if Christ has not been raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your faith is useless.” (1 Corinthians 15:14) So join us this Easter as we discuss the evidence and importance of these three questions: Did Jesus really live? Did He really die? Did He really rise?
