Wasn’t Sunday a great day of celebration as we worshipped a Risen Savior on Easter Sunday! Even last-minute changes due to weather couldn’t deter the atmosphere of South Lakes. I also want to send out a huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers who helped to pull off a great service as we welcomed 180 people to church that morning! Nothing would have happened if it were not for your willingness to roll up your sleeves and work.
With all that being said, here are a couple of things that I want to make everyone aware of as we move forward as a church:
1. The stats are in, and personal invites are still the best way to get people to worship on Sunday mornings! With all the money spent on marketing. With all the time spent stuffing eggs and throwing them into yards. With all the paid social media posts, the #1 way marked on connection cards as to why people came to church on Sunday was overwhelmingly due to personal invites. Thank you for being proactive in inviting people to church. May we continue to become a church that is intentional in inviting people to worship.
2. The launch of the 2nd service is this Sunday, April 23rd. Both worship services will be identical and will start at 9:30 and 11:15 am. Please help us create as much momentum as possible by taking the 6-week challenge. The 6-week challenge is a commitment to be in church for the next 6 consecutive weeks. We know that life happens and that you might have to miss a Sunday, and that’s okay. The important thing is helping us launch with momentum. Also, please help us spread the word by inviting people to take the 6-week challenge alongside of you. This is a great way for you and your family to help propel South Lakes forward.
3. Lastly, this Sunday we are launching a new series entitled, FREEDOM. This new mini-series will cover the Gospel of John chapters 8-10, as we look at the freedom that we can have in Christ. We are beginning this new mini-series in order to allow people an opportunity to jump into something new, instead of in the middle of a preexisting series. If you’ve been following along with our Gospel of John series, you will not be disappointed as we hone in on FREEDOM in Christ.
