New Neighbors posted by John Sorensen on Aug 22, 2018
Has someone moved into your neighborhood this summer? If so, do you have a welcome plan?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, president of Evangelism Explosion International for Share Life Today. I was surprised to learn recently that eleven percent of Americans move annually. That means about 36 million people will move this year. And half of those moves take place between May and Labor Day. So guess what that means? We have a great opportunity to walk over with a plate of cookies or a pie and welcome the new neighbors to the neighborhood. While chatting, you could ask if they’re looking for a new church home and if so suggest yours. Tell them what you like about it. You can even offer to give them a ride. If they have children, make sure you know something about your church’s children’s and youth activities. Parents often choose a church with their children in mind.
