Feeling list-less? Here's "10 Ways Churches Show That They Want You"

Joe McKeever: 10 Ways Churches Show That They Want You

You are given a warm, personal welcome.
  1. They make everything clear in print, in sermon, and in announcements. (I Corinthians 14:8) The signage is clear and just right.
  2. They have great rest rooms. (For some reason, I'm unable to find a good scripture for this!)
  3. A few learn your name and call you by it. They show a genuine interest.
  4. They invite you to other things. (Revelation 22:17).
  5. They respect you, and do not push themselves on you. (Revelation 3:20)
  6. They have greeters outside the front doors, not inside. (Psalm 84:10 You knew I was going to use that, didn't you?)
  7. They give you an opportunity to respond, to ask questions, and to join. (Acts 8:36)
  8. They contact you during the following week. (Acts 14 14:21-22 and 15:36).
  9. They get back to you with the information you requested.
Nothing to add except my response:
Another problem (although probably covered by #'s 1 and/or 2, but not specifically mentioned) is churches that don't post the times of their worship services (or even a phone number so one can call to find out). I'm just wondering if they expect people who don't know this information should just hang around the church all morning until it opens.
