Our family has been the church shopper. We moved to a new city, had no friends in that city, and looked for a church where our family could give our time, talents, and treasure. We wanted a place where we could invest our lives for this new chapter of life. Here are 8 lessons I learned from making several visits over the past year before we found a church home.
You were a first-time church visitor.
What emotions do you recall?
Do you recall the disorientation of not knowing where things are? Maybe you recall wondering if you'd fit in? What other emotions are there?
Don't forget those feelings. Use them to help your church welcome.
