As families are navigating the return to church after the pandemic and the faith stretching/reshaping that entailed, let us WELCOME THEM BACK. More than saying hello, let’s add some deliberateness to our welcome!
Every Sunday we need to be practicing these things:
Ask Names. Use Names. Repeat Names.
Invite families and children back for next Sunday. Don’t assume.
Recapture the idea of the morning: What was the point or one thing for them to take with them. Remind them many times
Next Steps each Sunday: Work on that memory verse. Watch DayONE…
Encourage everyone to invite/bring someone next Sunday or to an upcoming event
Which one will you focus on today?
