Who Have You Invited Lately?
Though 85% of Americans call themselves Christians, only 69% regard themselves as church members. Only 43% will attend church services on a given Sunday. Another 22% will occasionally. Only 22% of Americans attend Bible classes on Sunday mornings. There are now 79 million "unchurched" people in America.
Many of these 79 million people are "marginal" at best. They claim to be Christians but do not practice their Christianity by church attendance. These are the people who need a church home!
Why do they need a church home? For the same reasons you do. They need the spiritual help and climate going to church provides. They need the Scriptures preached and to remember the Lord's death in His supper. They need to praise the Lord in song and to pray about their needs. They need the Lord's help and teaching from week to week.
They also need a church home because we all need our brothers and sisters in Christ. Life has a way of handing us surprises from time to time. It means so much to have the support of loving brothers and sisters who pray with us and for us when we need them. Solomon was right when he said that, "two are better than one" (Ecclesiastes 4:9). There is strength in numbers, and brothers and sisters, assure our hearts when they walk beside us in serving the Lord. "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend" (Proverbs 27:17).
Surely you know someone who needs a church home. Won't you help them? Bring them to worship here at Smithville!
