Easter at The Branch

I’m excited about these upcoming Easter services.  Lately we’ve been constantly evaluating what we can do better as leaders…and in what ways can we introduce new ideas and mediums from which to worship to our community of believers…

Easter is always that time of year that people actually get out and go to church.  There is no doubt about it.  This year we’ve also been pushing our members to invite new people.  Just get them here.  The idea behind this is great…they get here and they will like it so much that they will stay.  The problem comes that, in reality, we don’t do a very good job of meeting people where they are and introducing Jesus into their normal, daily lives.  I think in many ways we ask too much of the non-Christian if they were to come to our church for the first time.  Conformity, though we may not admit it, is expected by some of our people…and that is a turn off right away.

But anyways, I hope this Easter Sunday will be different.  I hope we are able to meet those fringe-church-goers where they are…and engage them in some way that will get them thinking about coming back.   Here’s hoping….
