Invitation & Welcome

Who is your +1?
July 31, 2016 – Aug. 7, 2016

Inviting people to church can be really daunting, but it doesn’t need to be! In this series, we will hear great examples of how actual people at Artisan were invited for their first visit, and we’ll talk about why it’s important to invite our friends as well as get some practical advice about how to do it—not to mention what we can all do to make people feel welcome once they attend.

Message line-up:

Inviting Friends
Colleen Schneider

As we consider inviting our friends into our faith journey we look at the examples of Paul, Silas, and Timothy who shared their faith by living among their Gentile friends.

1 Thessalonians 2:1-13
Welcoming the Stranger
Pastor Scott Austin

As we think specifically about whom to invite, it will be helpful to remember that we are inviting people to a way of life that is actually quite wonderful, and it will be important to to make our church very welcoming for people who accept the invitation.
