Guest Speaker and Workshop
10XCHURCH Worship & Workshop
Make plans to attend Worship as usual on the 26th to hear guest speaker Patrick Steil share insight and lessons learned from his unique experiences as a first-time visitor:
“I believe all churches want to grow — and so they try to be “friendly”, but 90% of the time they are NOT welcoming to US as first-time guests. My wife, kids and I have spent the past year traveling around the country, each Sunday visiting a different church. We learned firsthand what is needed for us to want to come back again and again. Here are the most common reactions we have after visiting a church:
“The worship service was great, but I don’t have any reason to return.”
“I think we might come back next Sunday.”
“I’m ready to join this church today!”
“This was so awesome! Who else can I invite to this church?”
Do you want guests to have the first two reactions, or the second two!?! This is what gets me excited about this workshop! I want to show your church how to make Sunday morning a WARM, WELCOMING house of ACCEPTANCE, JOY AND LOVE!”
*After worship, all are invited to attend a workshop that extends the principles Patrick discusses. Lunch will be served. Contact Pastor Sam for more information!
**Our meal will be prepared by two of the lovely and talented Wednesday Night Chefs: Kimberly Glaze and Sue Snider!
A Big Thank You!
For numerous years First Methodist Church has so graciously adopted families in Sherman ISD. Now that we have a partnership with Crutchfield our families come from Crutchfield and Fred Douglass.
“The last 4 years I was able to be apart of this amazing mission. If you could only see the faces of the parents when they come to pick up the items. It is so emotionally overwhelming and well received.” ~Wendy Vellotti
