As I read through a few blogs this morning, I came across an interesting post titled, “Should I go to church today?” It provides an interesting perspective on reaching out to those outside the church.
The part that caught my attention said ….
- “I don’t know any non-Christian who wakes up and thinks, “Gee, I should go to church today.” Churches need to find ways to make people think that very thought–whether it’s through billboards or outreach events or the incredible example of their members (or all three and more–my point, don’t get hung up on the method). If churches aren’t getting people to think that, then what are they doing? Unfortunately, too many churches have settled for the status quo, the steady stream of Christians who do wake up thinking they should go to church, and for some churches that’s good enough.”
I think we can all learn and grow from each others experiences, good or bad. So, how does your church attempt to reach beyond its walls?
