We have started well.
The past six weeks have been a great experience. We have grown I unity. We have reached out to the community. And we have dedicated our time and treasure to the goal of a new home.
So what’s next?
We need to carry the momentum God has given to greater heights!
How do we do that?
You keep the fire burning by either changing the logs around are by adding a new log to the fire. The same thing is true for our church. We will have to move some of our programming around and add some new into it.
One of the first items we are planning to do is go to two services. I wrote about why a couple of blogs ago. That’s the new log on the fire.
Another way we want to continue the momentum is by creating a more evangelistic atmosphere in our worship service. This is changing some logs around in the fire. Here is what we plan on doing.
First, this Sunday we will re-introduce the invitation time. Meaning, at the end of the message we will give an opportunity for people to respond the Gospel. We are doing this for a couple of reasons. One is we want to give the opportunity. Secondly, Christians need to hear the Gospel over and over. With all the church stuff going on we can forget the primary reason we are here.
Secondly, and you may have already noticed this, each week you get an invitation card in your bulletin. You can use this card to invite someone to church.
Thirdly, we are going to have Big Sundays. What is a big Sunday? Big Sundays are special Sunday’s throughout the year- Easter and the Christmas Eve service being two obvious ones. Honestly, we’ve done a poor job in developing and promoting our Big Sundays here at C3. Starting next year we are going to see a bigger emphasis on these days. Our first one is “Give It Up!” Sunday.
More info on that later.
Let me ask you: How can we be better with creating an evangelistic culture in our church?
