Shawnee Presbyterian Church




10% Is All I Ask

I bet you thought I would be talking to you about money and church giving, but not today. As your pastor I am asking us to take seriously our commitment to our congregation’s attendance on Sunday morning. We have been holding fairly stable in our attendance and now is a great time to begin growing once again. We have been averaging about 70 people in attendance over the last couple of years. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to worship with a few more people? This challenge is for all of us.

Who should we focus on inviting and how do we find them? Look around your house and encourage family members who do not attend regularly to join us at least one Sunday a month. Our children’s grandchildren and other extended family are also wonderful prospects who likely would love to spend a special Sunday with you. Asking a neighbor to come to church with you is not nearly as daunting if you ask them for one Sunday to see what they think. If each of us would take this challenge seriously we would increase our attendance by far more than 10% in a fairly short period of time.

What Sunday’s are best to invite someone to? Children’s Sunday School will be active again after Labor Day. Adult Sunday School will start back in August. The first Sunday of every month we have communion and the children collect our Food When We’re Fed offering. The fourth Sunday the children collect the Noisy Offering. You could also plan to bring someone when we put together sack lunches for Crosslines or snack packs for Ronald McDonald House. What about bringing someone for our Fall Kick-Off on Sunday, September 12 as we worship together at 10:30 and then gather in the Fellowship Hall for a potluck meal.

10% is all I ask. We will measure this and report our new average attendance each week as we enjoy seeing family, friends, and new friends. We are a part of a really neat church that seems to be the best kept secret in Shawnee. Help me help us with a little effort in getting folks to our church each Sunday morning.

In Ministry Together,
Pastor Craig
