Back in October, Bill preached a message entitled Making Friends for God (Click here to listen). He challenged each of us to identify people within seven concentric circles of relationships, and in these relationships we identified, to be prayerful and watchful for ways to show love and share hope. Easter gives us a great opportunity for just that! Because it’s Easter, many of these people who are in our circles of relationships (family, relatives, close friends, neighbors, business associates and acquaintances) may be more motivated to attend church than any other day this year. And what a great day for them to come! What other day is the celebration for the love we’ve been shown in Jesus and the hope we have because He lives more evident in our worship?
We want your family to CHOOSE one or two families that you will visit, taking along an invitation packet that we’ll provide, and personally invite them to attend UBC on Easter with you. Here’s how:
- Make choosing which families you will invite a ‘family decision’. As a family, talk together about which families you should CHOOSE to personally invite.
- As a family, visit the tent in the main parking lot this Sunday to select and package the items for your invitation packets. Among the items are a card you can personalize, a DVD previewing the Family Ministry environments and past Easters at UBC, a bag of yummy cookies, and an Easter invite with all the options of service times listed.
- Make plans to deliver the invitation(s). Put the time and date on the family calendar.
- Pray, and while praying for your guests, pray that UBC will be a church where many are introduced to Jesus.
On Monday, the Family Ministry team met together to pray, by name, for each UBC family who made packets this past Sunday and for the families they chose to invite. God reminded us how persistently He pursues us through the love and care of others! Tagging up with that memory created an urgency and excitement to be ready to welcome our guests with the love of Jesus and to be expectant that He’s pursuing them. What a privilege to partner with you and with Jesus!
