BACK TO CHURCH SUNDAY 2017
“Back to Church Sunday,” part of a national movement of churches across America, will be held at Andalusia Full Gospel Tabernacle in Andalusia at 10:30am September 17th.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
Since it started as a call to action and invitation for the church in 2009, the National Back to Church Sunday movement continues to gain momentum. More than 4 million Christ followers have participated through 30,000 churches! It is a day focused on uniting the church to equip and empower members to be inviters.
Eight out of ten people say they are open to visiting church if invited—they are just waiting for an invitation.
For Back to Church Sunday, AFGT will have a special service that features award winning Gospel recording artist Janet Paschal presented by Comfort Care Hospice. Janet’s career is marked by honors and accolades. With more than twenty recordings to her credit, Janet's passion and vulnerability are most evident in her inspiring music, including her latest release, Treasure. Her recordings have been recognized with numerous Grammy and Dove Award nominations, and she is consistently named among Gospel Music's favorite soloists by the genre's top trade magazines.
Common Grounds Café, inside AFGT, will offer free muffins and coffee prior to service. There will be door prizes, special giveaways, and much more as we get #backtochurch!
BTCS has a new theme this year, “A Place to Belong,” that is relevant to the felt need in today’s culture of people wanting to be a part of authentic community.
The message is that peoples’ stories matter, and they can find a place to fit in and make a difference right in their own local church.
Participating churches believe that there has never been a better time than now for people to come back and get plugged in to a church that offers a place to belong, opportunities to serve the community, and the chance to grow spiritually through a journey of personal faith.
