Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on ”
Colossians 2:7 (NLT)
Should Your Church Participate?
This fall could be one of the biggest opportunities to welcome people back to church! A Back to Church Sunday event can be the perfect launch event for your fall ministry season – it connects and engages your regular attenders while providing the entire church with a focused goal to invite friends and neighbors to come to church!
“We have all felt the downward pressure on church attendance. Yet, the moment we are in does not change the mission we are on. And, this Back to Church Sunday could be a game changing moment— as people rearrange their lives to a new reality this fall, it’s an opportunity to invite people to consider the place of faith. And, this could be a great time to engage people who’ve disconnected from church in the last two years. Let’s seize the moment and show and share the love of Jesus.”
Executive Director, Wheaton College Billy Graham Center
