Extending an Invitation
By far, most of the people they interviewed said that a simple, "Why don't you try coming to King of Peace this Sunday?" are likely to respond with a yes, especially if they know you'll be there too. Yet the reasearch team also found that only 21 percent of church goers asked anyone to church the previous year. In fact, King of Peace has grown so much because the people who attend our church often mention the church to others. Some of the people you invite, will never come. Some people you invite will attend and discover we are not the church for them. But some people you invite will find the community of faith they need. As you've read this, did God put anyone in particular on your heart? If so, this may be the week to make the invitation.
