The Pastor's Perspective
Friendship Sunday is coming this Sunday, March 1st. What can you do to help make this a great day? 1. Invite your friends- 8 out of 10 people will attend church if they are invited. 2. Pray for those who have been invited to come. Pray that the effects of the winter storm will have cleared so everyone can get to church. 3. Be in attendance. 4. Give a warm greeting to those you do not know.
