I am getting excited about this coming Sunday, September 12, which we are calling Back to Church Sunday.
I ran into a person (well, not literally) in a coffee shop this morning who told me that they had been thinking of coming to church this coming Sunday. They did not know it was Back to Church Sunday
I don’t think they have ever been to Gospel Chapel before, but some difficult circumstances in this person’s life had caused them to reflect on what was happening and they thought of church.
After we finished our conversation they assured me that they would be there this Sunday. How encouraging is that.
Oh, and the other thing I am very excited about is the beginning of a new men’s ministry called Men’s Fraternity.
Men need to be encouraged and challenged to step up to be a man. How would you define a man? Can you rattle off a definition?
If you are a man reading this I want to invite you to come to Men’s Fraternity. It begins on September 22 at 6:00 am. Yup, you heard right – 6 bells.
It goes for 1 ½ hours – from 6:00 am to 7:30 am.
You may have heard this statistic:
When a child comes to Christ a very small percentage of the rest of the family will follow.
When a wife comes to Christ a larger percentage of the rest of the family will follow.
When a man comes to Christ, over 90% of the rest of the family will follow. WOW!
Men come out and step up to the plate as it were. Join us – you will not be disappointed.
