CONGREGATIONAL RENEWAL

HOSPITALITY AND EVANGELISM


When visitors come to your church, do they have a sense tht you've been expecting them, that you are open to tyhem, that you are pleased to see them? We all want to say yes to those questions but the reality is that coming to most churches on a Sunday reqwuires knowing the church jargon and the secret handshake. Evangelism begins with hospitality where we intentionally welcome the stranger in our midst.
