Back to Church

Dear Fellow Pilgrim,

I greet you with a description of who we are: But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light (1 Peter 2:9).

Do you know anyone in this Valley who at one time went to church but no longer does?

Do you think they would return if you asked them?

We are told that many of these people are waiting for a genuine invitation to return.

Their return is just one invitation away – an invitation from you and me.

Do you realize what a difference you can make in someone else’s life by inviting them back to church?

I am so excited and grateful for this opportunity to encourage people to reconnect with the family of God and in some cases with God Himself.

I want to encourage you to prayerfully think of who you would love to invite Back to Church on September 12, 2010.

We still have a few of the little booklets left, entitled: “10 reasons why people are leaving the church and why they are coming back.” They are well done and do not hit people over the head with guilt.

I remind us of the reason we exist as a church: Compelled by Christ’s love, Gospel Chapel exists as a family belonging to God that is united in loving Him, loving others, and helping people follow Jesus.

What an incredible privilege to be on this journey together with the One who is in charge – JESUS!

Looking forward to what God will do as we are faithful in praying and inviting.

God bless you richly today,

Pastor Henry
