The Secret to Getting People to Come to Church—Shocking and Amazing!!
Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.
Do you see the fields, white, ready for harvest? They are everywhere around us: friends, neighbors, coworkers, acquaintances. Every single study of how people are drawn to the Gospel of Jesus and into His Church proves, beyond any shadow of doubt or argument, that the single most effective “technique” is simply this: a Christian inviting a non-Christian to church, going with them and introducing them to the Church. Yes, it’s that simple. All the fancy-schmancy programs and techniques and “new amazing principles” never, ever, match the effectiveness of the simple invitation: “Come and see!”
And so, my friends in Christ, we here at CPH cordially invite you to take the opportunity presented by Easter to reach out, boldly, to all those around you, to entire neighborhoods and communities and invite people to “come and see!” We have developed a simple, yet powerful, little outreach kit for you to use. Here is more information about it. How about this for an idea? What if each family in your congregation were given this kit and encouraged to distribute these components to fifty friends, family, neighbors, etc. I know Lutherans are reticent to do anything like this, come on, admit it, we are, but…how about we give it a try? What could it hurt? Can we at least try to bring people into the Church where they will be able to hear God’s Word? We can do it!
