Invite on Easter

First Family,

As Easter quickly approaches, I want to remind you that there is no better time to be intentional about inviting someone to church. You may have heard it said before that Easter is our “Super Bowl of church!”

Although not a perfect illustration, it accurately conveys the opportunity over the next few weeks. The Super Bowl is the most-watched sporting event of the year and the most-watched television program of the year. Likewise, Easter Sunday is the most attended church service of the year. Historically, First Baptist will double in attendance on Easter Sunday. Millions of people who watch the Super Bowl typically don’t watch football, and millions of people who attend church on Easter typically don’t attend church.

The question I would like to ask is: “How can we take advantage of the one week where unchurched people and nonbelievers are most likely to say “yes” to a church invitation?”
The short answer is to simply invite them.

This Sunday we are going to make available to you invitation materials to make the most of this invitation opportunity. We will have door hangers, yard signs, and invitation cards. We are looking for families who will place a yard sign in front of their home and then place a door hanger on the home of their surrounding neighbors.

People are waiting to be invited.
People are longing to be included.
People are looking for a place to go.

So go ahead and seize this opportunity and watch what God does! Let's each reach one more for Jesus!

Pastor Robert
