The Big Welcome

It is happening all over the country today, at dozens of churches. Last year it was called ‘Back to Church Sunday’. But some people objected to ‘Back’ [what if they hadn’t been before?] others to ‘Church’ [what if we meet in a school building or other non-ecclesiastical structure?] others to ‘Sunday’ [what if our event is on a Saturday?] There probably are even some who objected to the word ‘to’ ! But it’s been renamed The Big Welcome.

Here at KMFC we have delivered hundreds of personal invitations, and put up a poster, and planned a [free] lunch for after-church.

And we’ve prayed hard…

Lord may the people come, and may we make them welcome!


  1. Have a great day!

  2. Here also. We called it 'Come to church Sunday', but I think your idea is more relevant.

  3. Hi Angela, Thanks so much for the great idea for using the left over place mat for coasters. I hate wasting materials too!! Your email is set to "No Reply", so I couldn't email you back. If you ever want to change that setting on your profile, I have a tutorial on the right side bar of my blog labeled No Reply.
    Thanks again,

  4. hi Karen - thanks for all the great tips on your blog.
    Initially I decided I didn't want to get email messages- but recently have felt I should change that, so I have done so now!

  5. Just back from The Big Welcome Angela. We really enjoyed the service, the food, the chat and how welcome we have been made over the last few months. Thanks to everyone at KMFC

  6. I much prefer the new name. We still call it "Back to Church Sunday".

    Your prayers were answered.

  8. We had "Back to Church Sunday" last week.
    "The Big Welcome" sounds a whole lot better to me. :-)
