Hey Highlands Family!
This weekend we’re starting a brand new series called, THE WALKING DEAD!!! This is a series about The End of Time! I’m often asked, “Do you think we’re living in the Last Days?” This is an age-old question that both believers and non-believers frequently discuss.
THE WALKING DEAD will be a great series to invite your family and friends to attend. Did you know that 85% of all U.S. Christians came to know Christ because someone invited them to a church service where they heard the gospel and eventually gave their lives to Christ? The power of an invitation is huge!! At Highlands, we do a couple of series a year that are definitely attractive to people who are far from God. The WALKING DEAD is one of those series with this target in mind. So, my challenge is for you to not only invite your friends, but I want to encourage you to take a risk and step outside your comfort zone and invite people in your sphere of influence that you know if they died today, they would die lost. They would die without any knowledge of a God who created them and that He has a purpose for their life. They would be eternally separated from God.
How long has it been since you have actually invited someone to church? This is a great question for you to consider. A lot of research has now surfaced that reveals the major differences between growing churches and dying churches is whether people are inviting or not. Growing churches have people that are inviting others at least three times a month to attend a service with them. You are the best marketing we could ever have at Highlands. So, please, take a chance and let’s be willing to pass on the adventure of the Christian life that God has captured our hearts for, to those that desperately need His hope.
