We all have people in our lives that we care deeply about. Simply inviting someone to church could be all it takes for Jesus to take hold of them and change their life. All we have to do is ask people we know to come! If you’re ready to take the Next Step of becoming an inviter, consider the following steps to help:
PRAY WITHOUT CEASING:
Like every decision in our lives, we should go to God in prayer concerning church invitations. Pray for God to move the hearts of those you invite (Ezekiel 11:19), and also ask Him to move you in the right direction (Colossians 4:3)
MAKE A LIST OF PEOPLE TO INVITE:
While you should always be open to the opportunities that God sends your way, think about those in your inner circle who do not attend church or are nonbelievers.
TALK ABOUT YOUR CHURCH WITH YOUR LIST:
Whenever it is natural, talk about your church. It is much easier to invite someone to church if they have heard you speak about it before. Rather than a sudden invite, the individual will already know where you go to worship and why you attend.
EXTEND THE INVITATION:
Fortunately, there are many ways to invite people to church. In addition to a face-to-face invite or email and text message invites, there are also other options for invites:
- Giving someone an invite card from Webster Gardens
- Sending email invitations that are already designed for church events using evites
- Sharing church events on Facebook
