WHAT’S KEEPING YOU OUT OF CHURCH?

There are many things that keeping many coming to the Church and also as many reasons that keep people away. Its amazing how church families can become clique-like without realising the effects it can have on the church especially when we receive visitors; which is more likely than not. We can sometimes be so attached to our cliques and not notice the new people in our midst as it happened to our reader Rachel.

“No one greeted us or saw us to our seats and i understand that church can be busy and hectic, its just that it would have been nice for someone to talk to our family after the service at least just to make us feel welcomed.


There are some things we can be mindful of in church to avoid such mistakes happening, here are 3 but feel free to share more.

  • PLEASE DON’T IGNORE ME!

Remember visitors are not usual attendee’s therefore never assume they know there way around this new environment: Greet them, show them to their seat and make them feel at home. Yes this is important!

  • OFFER HELP

During the service try and read the situation and try to remember to offer help. Visitors do not know the protocol of this new environment a little gentle guidance goes a long way.

  • CONNECT

There is nothing more amazing than someone taking interest in you. Don’t be nosy but ask enough, Name, where they’re from but also actively listen as it will go a long way. Make people feel loved as people come with all sorts of troubles and the church is where they come to find healing.

There are so many things we could go through, however I would like to extend this post over to you and please feel free to share your thoughts. Always be mindful that new visitors if attending for the first time may want to sit together as a family, therefore never force them to be separated as it can be uncomfortable.

God bless you and feel free to share your thoughts and also with others.

    We tested coffee makers for the water temperature during the brew cycle and the brewing time as well as the temperature of the coffee at the end of brewing and during the keep warm cycle. In addition, we evaluated each brewer’s ease of use, including how easy it was to read and use the controls, access the water tank and brew basket, read the markings on the tank and carafe, whether or not it had automatic keep warm and shut off cycles, and the ease of cleaning the carafe.

    I’m the manager of JustCBD label (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently trying to develop my wholesale side of company. It would be great if someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I considered that the most ideal way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape stores and cbd retail stores. I was really hoping if anyone could recommend a qualified website where I can get CBD Shops B2B Data List I am already examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the most ideal option and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

    Church is like High School…you have your ‘It’ crowd and ‘outsiders’…Church was and still is one big clique…you have the ‘celebrities’ that get up and brag about all the good they do and ministries they belong to, then after service they walk right past you as though you dont exist…I’m done with churches that pick and choose who they reach out to…who needs that ???
