How to be a Welcoming Church

Many churches are friendly, but not welcoming. And yes, there is a difference! A friendly church smiles, shakes hands, and tells people that they are glad to see them. A welcoming church moves people past their first visit and into the family of faith. Friendly is not necessarily welcoming!

Don’t you want people to become a part of your family of faith? I would think so. Here is how. In this message I use the word WELCOME to show you how to move your church past friendly and into a place of true Biblical hospitality. This is a great video to show your leadership teams, especially your first impressions team, to help them understand how to become a welcoming church.

Here is some articles on welcoming that helped me prepare for this message.
