“The average church sees a 25 PERCENT increase in attendance on Back to Church Sunday – even small churches.” Happy 10th Anniversary! Can you believe National Back To Church Sunday (this year: September 16th) is now in its 10th year as a nationwide movement? Over the last decade, there have been a lot of changes in the culture and how the church interacts with it. What hasn’t changed is the need for people to hear about Jesus, and the need for churches to share God’s love with their communities. Research shows that 80 percent of people would come to church if invited by a friend or neighbor, but only 2 percent of Christians ever invite someone to church! With statistics like that, it seemed natural to make it easier for churches to engage their members and empower them to invite others to church. National Back To Church Sunday offers easy-to-use, compelling resources that help church members step out of their comfort zones to invite friends and neighbors to church.

Some church members may not be comfortable handing out invitations or going door to door, but they’re probably willing to post something on social media. That’s why there are more digital graphics and videos created for Back To Church Sunday than ever. Churches can post a fun, inviting video that makes it easy for members to share with their friends across social media. We hope the third Sunday in September will continue to be a special day in churches all across America for years to come. Thank you for being part of the movement!
