Show Your Church Family How to Communicate, "We're Glad You're Here"
A 6-Session Study by Michael Kelley and Thom S. Rainer
Two practices are foundational to the identity and mission of the church: (1) evangelism—inviting others into the family of Christ and (2) discipleship—leading those people to grow in their walk with Christ and in ministry with His body, the Church. While most Christians would certainly agree with that truth, we’re not always a welcoming people who encourage spiritual growth and participation in the life and ministry of the Church.
It’s wise to periodically ask ourselves how we’re doing at welcoming others to the faith and the family of God. This study complements the book Becoming a Welcoming Church by Thom S. Rainer, highlighting biblical teaching and examples that support the practical suggestions in the book. It examines several principles that will show your church family how to clearly and authentically communicate, “We’re glad you’re here.”
