Who will you invite to church this Sunday?

It’s time to reach out and invite your neighbors to church! People need to know that there is hope and a community of people like our church who will welcome them and love them. That's why Solid Rock Church is joining the National Back to Church Sunday movement this Sunday, September 21st.
According to Lifeway Resources, 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! Even if you've never tried inviting someone to church, we are going to make it easy this fall with with this special service.
It’s not as hard as it may seem. Did you know that most people who have dropped out of church haven’t lost their faith in God—they simply fell 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 to church.
I encourage you to step out in faith and invite someone to rediscover church. Inviting a friend is a simple gesture that could change someone’s life.

We gave out postcard invitations this past Sunday for you to give out. You can also use Facebook posts and personal invitations to reach out to your friends and family members. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to invite them to church with you.
