The Pastor's Perspective
Easter Sunday is the best Sunday of the year to invite someone to church. Many people will attend an Easter Sunday service even though they don't attend church services at any other time of the year. Who could you invite this Easter? Decide on those you will invite. Pray for them. Invite them well in advance of Easter. Make a follow-up reminder the week leading up to Easter. Could you fill a whole pew on Easter Sunday? I am sure you could!
