The National “Back to Church Sunday” is about “Inviting America Back to Church.” God and church are important to every good society and to our personal lives. So this day is simply a way to activate the church to engage its community. Churches across America are trying to reach the "un-churched" and "de-churched"— in order to help people "rediscover" or "discover" church.
There are many reasons why a person doesn't go to church and many reasons why someone may have been turned off by church. But there is no time like now to start anew and discover the difference church can make in your life! National Survey's show that nearly 83% of American's identify themselves as Christians, yet only 20% of American's attend church on any given Sunday. This special day is simply a reminder to all of us about the importance of God and church in our lives and community. The first step to belonging, making a change for the better or finding God may begin with each person having the courage to invite someone to church or deciding to find a church to attend this Sunday.
This year there are about 14,000 churches participating with an estimation of two million visitors expected. Hopefully you may be one of those visitors or one of those people who will invite a friend. You can visit the back to church website (www.backtochurch.com) and find a church in your area.
In Cuyahoga Falls, Broadman Baptist Church, 350 E. Bath Road, is part of this national movement of churches. We will celebrate this occassion, this Sunday, September 16, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
