Church Announcement: The Black Church Friends & Family Day!
Readers, have you ever introduce or invited those people closest to you who don't have a church home to a place that means something to you? Have you ever invited your next-door neighbor to come to church with you? I don’t know what you call it–Family and Friends Day was what we called it back in the church of my youth. Many churches today have bought into the idea of advertising as the best way to bring in new members, but I whole heartedly disagree. According to sources, 47% of people walk through the church-house door for the first time is because of an invitation and not because of advertising.
