To the Person Who Brought Three Neighbors


To the person who brought three neighbors to church this past Sunday, hats off!!!

Because that’s what it’s all about!

Ask yourself: “If I’ve been a member of Covenant for more than 20 years, who invited me the first time? And if I sought out the church on my own, who made the effort to connect with me?”

Many of you will be able to answer either or both of these questions with real names of real people who connected with you and gave you “the invitation.”

It’s as simple as inviting our neighbors, friends and family-members to come with us to church. We just have to do it, and not expect “someone else” to do it. It’s not the pastor or the elders, it’s not the deacons or some committee – it’s all of us who need to be “sending out those invitations.”

And then really follow up - sit with them, go out for lunch with them afterward, talk about God and faith, if it seems right, and keep on inviting them, sitting with them, and praying for them. Stay with it!

To the person who brought three neighbors to worship, three cheers for you and then some! Keep up the good work. You are an inspiration!

Covenant on the Corner, get busy sending out those invitations!

Jus t stumbled across your blog… who is this person that invited people to church… n’ the related story?
What’s the difference between inviting someone to church and introducing them to Jesus?
Perhaps it’s the difference between bringing someone to a place they could hear the Gospel (good news) and sharing the Gospel ourselves. Either is a step in the right direction, but I would hope I could introduce Jesus and as well as invite other to a place (church) where with other like minded folks who want to know Jesus and to know Him better.
