Anytime we can get together and worship it is a good thing. One thing that many congregations face is the challenge of the Sunday night service. At Northwest we typically have LIFE groups 9 months of the year and take 3 months off in the Summer time. We get such a low turnout on Sunday nights at the building it is hard to figure out how to effectively reach out even to our very own members who come for the AM service but don’t seem to think coming back is that big of a deal.
We are going to try something different tomorrow night. We will have some prayers and some singing and then we will be writing notes to homes in our neighborhood. We have a mailing list of 500+ homes in the immediate area and we are going to split the list up, pray for those families, and write them a personal note. Hopefully two things will happen through this. First, our members will get to be involved in serving and reaching out to others. Second, our neighbors will know we care and that we are here for them.
