Could this Easter be a defining moment for someone you know? An interesting statistic that we’ve shared in our And1 series this month is that “80% of people would consider coming to church if someone would just invite them.”
This past weekend in our services you heard the story of Brian & Christy Youngers and how an invite to our Westlink Campus started them on a journey of life change like they could not have imagined. I love their story because it’s a great reminder of the power of an invite.
For all of us as Christ-followers, Easter is a powerful reminder of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, God’s Son and a great time to celebrate. But think how much more wonderful the celebration can be if someone you invite attends a service and it begins a journey that changes their life.
You may have to invite multiple times. I talked to a friend at the Westlink Campus a couple of weeks ago. He was so excited because someone he had been inviting finally came. He told me, “I think they just ran out of excuses.” And sometimes that’s true.
Pick up your And1 Cue Card; begin praying for the right moment and someone you know that you could invite to a Pathway service this Easter. Between our three campuses there are 12 services, and we’re planning a phenomenal presentation of the hope that Easter brings.
Will this be a defining moment for someone you know? Make the ask and let the Holy Spirit do the work.
