Outreach – February 2016


“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone telling them?” Romans 10:14

Did you know that 82% of unchurched people are somewhat likely to attend church if invited? Those are pretty great odds don’t you think? Unfortunately, only 2% of church going people ever invite someone to church in a given year. To make matters worse, 7 out of 10 unchurched people have NEVER been invited to church in their whole lives. (Thom Rainer, The Unchurched Next Door)

Consider this: If we had 100 smiling faces in church on Sunday morning, only 2 of them would have invited a guest to visit with them.

Now consider this: If each of those 100 smiling faces in church on Sunday morning invited at least one person to visit church with them, we would see about 80 new smiling faces in our church on Sunday morning.

Outreach Question of the Month: Who has God placed in your life that needs an invitation to church?

Adult Team Trivia: Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to invite the unchurched people God has placed in your life! We have a fun and entertaining night of working together in teams to answer questions on a variety of topics! After they have had a great time, invite them to attend Sunday morning worship with you! Adult Team Trivia, led by MI Team Trivia, takes place on Friday, March 4 from 6:15-9:00pm in the RRC gym. Enter as a team of 5-8, or as a couple/individual to be placed on a team. Registration is easy! Register on line at rockfordrc.org/trivia-night or place your registration form in the box at the back of the sanctuary. REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS FEB. 28!   Childcare provided by RRC youth. Donations for childcare will go toward funding youth mission trips and retreats.

Videos to amuse, inspire, and challenge you!
