Aboite Lutheran Church is joining the National Back to Church Sunday movement to help “Invite America Back to Church.” Studies show that 82% of unchurched people would attend church if someone invited them, yet fewer than 2% of Christians ever invite an unchurched person to come to church! Let’s reach out to our friends, family and neighbors. People need to know that there is hope and a community of people like our church who will love them and do life with them. Most people who have dropped out of church haven’t lost their faith in God—they have simply fallen out of the habit of going to church. Some moved, had a change in life circumstances, or had a falling out with their former church and simply drifted away. Most often, life just became too busy. This means many of them could be open to returning. We encourage you to step out in faith and invite someone to rediscover church. We are planning a special breakfast service on September 16 so that our new guests will feel welcome and comfortable. Inviting a friend is a simple gesture that could change someone’s life. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to invite your friends and family to church with you. You and your guests are welcome to join us for breakfast at 8:30am or 11:00am on September 16, 2012.
