BRING A FRIEND TO CHURCH: 
Here are four quick, simple ways to help your guest be in church with you on Sunday:
  • Pray for Your Friend - Who do you know that needs Jesus? Seems simple, but it's so simple we don't do it. Begin by praying right now for someone you would like to bring to church this weekend (or soon).
  • Speak Up with a Friendly Spirit -  Just kindly say, "Hey, would you like to come to church with me Sunday?" I know, it seems random, or even scary if you don't do it much. So, decide right now--WHO will you invite to church this weekend?
  • Add a Caring Expression of Love - A cup of coffee and a donut before church, lunch after church, or an offer to pick them up. Be a true friend, not just a religious recruiter.
  • Team Up with Others - Chances are you and other Christian friends know the same lost or discouraged person. Perhaps you sit together. Christian community is a powerful evangelistic tool.

There are open doors and opportunities all around us. Your simple, loving, kind invitation to a healthy church could radically reorient someone's life and eternal destiny through Jesus!
