Welcome Home Sabbath - November 21, 2015
Many inactive members start thinking about church during the holiday season. That’s why the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America designates the Sabbath before Thanksgiving (in the US) as a day to invite friends and family to come back to church. (See NAD calendar of special days link: nadadventist.org
Why not start now to prepare a special day of programming and fellowship at your church? There are people in your town who have not attended church for weeks, or maybe even years. They need to know that they are still loved and welcome, regardless of why they stopped attending.
Paul Richardson, NAD Reconnecting Ministries Coordinator writes in his book, An Indescribable Welcome Home: "So are you in? Are you ready to join me in the reconciliation revolution? There are former and inactive members out there who are homesick. They need compassionate, forgiving, loving members who will act like the father and run out to meet them."
Below you will find resources and ideas to help make your church's Welcome Home Sabbath a success.
