Easter is Almost Here!
Out of great love, God sent His Son, Jesus, to break through our brokenness and sin to offer hope and healing. This is very good news and the reason we will gather to celebrate Easter in a little over a week!
Easter is one of those times of year where people who do not normally consider attending worship will come, possibly because a family member or friend has invited them. Be praying about who God is leading you to invite, then take the step of faith to extend that personal invitation.
Help Our Guests
There is no doubt in my mind that every New Hoper wants to make our guests feel welcomed and at ease. Here are two ways you can:
1) Fill Out the Card
On Easter Sunday, I will ask GUESTS AND MEMBERS to fill out a connect card. I earnestly ask you to fill out a card. Why? First, the more of us who participate in filling it out when asked, the more guests feel comfortable in participating and sharing their information with us. This allows us to follow-up with them after Easter.
Second, this gives members the opportunity to update their contact information and share any prayer requests for staff to pray over.
2) Be Aware and Engage
Look around for people you do not know on Easter Sunday. They may be guests. Engage them, speak with them, offer to help them find their way to the Worship Center. Be the genuine, caring people I know you are! We don't want anyone walking on our campus to feel "overlooked".
It's going to be an incredible morning of celebration and worship! I'll see you there!
