Welcome to XYZ Church. How can we help you?

J.D. Greear asks (and answers) a great question, one that most churches struggle with at some point:

“Does serving our neighbor and blessing our community have a role in evangelism, or is it a time- and resource-wasting distraction?” Read his thoughts here.

We HAVE to continually ask the question, ‘If our church would cease to exist tomorrow, would the community miss us?’

  • What are we doing that we need to discontinue?
  • What are we not doing that we need to start doing?
  • What local businesses are we not supporting?
  • What local schools have specific needs that we can help with?
  • Does XYZ Church ever come up in conversation at the coffee shop?
  • Do our neighbors even know we attend XYZ Church?
  • Why have we not shared that fact with them?
  • Do we know what’s going on in the lives of our friends and neighbors?
  • Does the community consider us an ‘open door’ church? Do they come knocking?

I think most of us (if we are brutally honest with ourselves) know the answers to these questions…

It’s time to make a presence in our community. Not for our glory, but for His.

Read J.D.’s article and start praying about what God would have YOU do, individually and as a church body. 

We are not here to make a name; we are here to glorify a name. Let’s get busy.
