As part of an Invite a Friend to Church Sunday program, the congregation of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada took the challenge to invite 2,003 people to church in the year 2003. The church continues to hold Invite a Friend Sundays where a sandwich lunch is prepared and served by the youth group.
The majority of people associated with churches arrive for the first time through the personal invitation of a friend-someone they trust, such as a friend, relative, business associate or neighbor.
So make every Sunday an Invite A Friend Sunday in your church.
