We apologize for the confusion, but since the power just came back on, we will be having our Sunday morning worship service. We realize that some may have already made alternative arrangements but we will still worship the Lord with whoever can make it.
Due to POWER OUTAGE this morning and HIGH WIND WARNING, the leaders of SRC have decided to cancel our morning worship service, Sunday School and Refuge today. Please consider an at home family worship time or attending a service at another church that you have always wanted to visit.
SRC leaders have just made a prudent decision to cancel all activities at church tomorrow. This includes morning Worship Service, Sunday School, Refuge Youth Group and the Evening Gathering. Hopefully our church members will take some time to privately worship God while being snowed in at our own homes.
The leaders of SRC are monitoring the weather forecast and potential impact on our Sunday morning worship service. We will publicize a decision whether or not to proceed with the Sunday worship service no later than 7:30AM Sunday morning. Stay tuned.
SRC Family- From time to time throughout 2019, as your pastor with a focus on church revitalization, I will be sharing resources to encourage and equip us for our work together. Here’s a video and article that will hopefully serve as a reminder for us to “Pray, Invest and Invite” in 2019. Pastor Mike
10 Reasons Church Members Don’t Invite Others to Church
- “I just don’t think about it.”
- “I’m afraid I’ll be rejected.”
- “The music isn’t that good.”
- “The preaching isn’t strong.”
- “We’ve got too many church problems right now.”
- “Our church is already too crowded.”
- “Nobody ever challenged me to invite anyone.”
- “I don’t know how to start the conversation.”
- “It’s the Spirit’s job—not mine—to bring people to church.”
- “It’s too far for people to come.”
Some highlights from today’s Rainer Report:
- When you invite someone to church with whom you have a relationship, they often will accept the invitation.
- Relationships is the number one factor for someone accepting an invitation to visit a church—not the music style.
- Introversion is no excuse to disobey the Great Commission.
- When church members invite others to church, it creates a culture of inviting and builds momentum in the church.
