Studying God's Word

Sunday School: Becoming a Welcoming Church

Sunday School class, at 10am in the Sunday School room behind the narthex, is open to both Adults and Youth. Please feel free to invite a neighbor or co-worker to join us for one of the 45-60 minute sessions.

We are doing a new series – a study entitled Becoming a Welcoming Church, by Thom Rainer.

Most church members don’t see their churches clearly.

In almost all of Thom S. Rainer’s consultations, church members perceive their church to be friendly. But as he surveyed guests, he found that the guests typically saw church members as unfriendly. The perception chasm existed because the members were indeed friendly . . . to one another. 

The guests felt like they crashed a private party.

Our facilitator is Rev. Terri McLellan. Please join us in the discussion.
