Think about the last time you saw a great movie or enjoyed a fantastic meal out. What did you do next? You probably told someone about it, right? You maybe even posted something on social media inviting others to try it for themselves. It's natural for us to share great experiences with those around us. We think church should be no different.
So here at Immanuel we value inviting our family members, friends, coworkers and neighbors to experience God with us at church. It's one of the ways we take our mission personally. That being said we believe we're tasked with four things:
- Maintain a list of unchurched people in your life that you're going to build a friendship with.
- Commit to inviting 5 different people to church every year.
- Regularly share what's happening and excites you at Immanuel through social media.
- Pray for opportunities to share Jesus with your circle of influence through both words AND actions.
Pretty simple. Pretty doable. In fact, a simple, doable next step might be sending a link to this website out to a friend via text, email or social media. What's the worst that can happen? An even better question might be: what if that message is the very beginning of a life-changing relationship with Jesus?
