My husband and I, along with several other members of our church, are participating in a workshop that is meant to try and help save dying churches. One of the things that most of the churches involved are struggling with is attracting new people to come to church.
So we were given the homework task of trying to think of things that might help attract people to come to the church. I have come up with a few ideas, but I know I am fairly odd, and I don't know if my ideas are that great. Then I realized what an incredible think tank this group is!
Now, I know many of you are not Christians, and many of you are not fond of organized religion. But if you could please think hypothetically, if you were going to look for a church for your family, what sort of things would make you feel more at home? Would you want a more contemperary service? Would you want specialized classes on different subjects? Would you like maybe a group that gets together just as a support group and not so much a bible study? Would you be interested in a church community garden?
What sort of things would make you feel like you could feel at home?
