Bethany Hamilton

"Growing up I was blessed to have a great church to be apart of! This is where I met many friends who have encouraged me in my life to live strong for Christ! I hope you can find a great church too! National Back to Church Sunday is a great time to start looking for a church that suits you!"

- Bethany Hamilton, Pro Surfer, Inspiration for the movie "Soul Surfer"

Ken Davis

"In a cyber age of isolation people are desperate for a sense of community. Jesus Christ and his community of believers are where the hope and belonging that so many seek can be found. Invite someone to church! Better yet bring them! Watch what God does."

- Ken Davis, Author, speaker, and communications trainer

Laura Story

"I’ve had the privilege of serving at Perimeter church for the past 8 years and I serve there because I believe that the church is God’s plan A for the redemption of all nations. I believe God desires for our local congregations to be the chief equippers for families, for marriages and simply for individuals investigating their own gifts and calling. Missing out on your local church is missing out on discovering who God created you to be."

- Laura Story, Singer/Songwriter

Steve Goold

"So many positive things happen when the followers of Christ are in community with one another. Encouragement, edification, growth... God is the one who gives us these things, but he does it through other believers, and we forfeit the chance to receive these blessings when we avoid community. Get back to church!"

- Steve Goold, Drummer, Owl City

Josh Hamilton

"God's word tells us to spur one another on toward love and good deeds, and not give up meeting together. (Hebrews 10:24,25) He is all about relationships and we are to walk through life with other believers. My family and I have found that church is a wonderful way to do this, so I encourage you to join thousands of Americans as they go back to church on National Back to Church Sunday."
