Church Attendance and Support –Part I


1. Checkup for church members


Q1:  How many morning services would we have if everyone would stay home when I do?
 
Q2: How often would the evening service be canceled if no one would go  except when I do?

Q3: How often would the Sunday school meet if others would attend only when I do?

Q4 How much Christian instruction would the children of my community receive if other parents would pay only as much attention to it as I do?

Q5: How many neighbors would be invited to services and welcomed if others would invite and welcome only as many people as I do?

Q6: How many prayers would be offered for my pastor, my neighbors, and my church if others would pray only as much as I do?

Q7:  How many words of testimony would be given for Christ if others would speak out for Christ only as much as I do?

Q8:  What kind of church would my church be if every member were just like me?

 
2. Walk in Christ The Light
   “ Brethren, walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is a shame even to speak of the things that they do in secret; but when anything is exposed by the light it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it is said, ‘Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.’

 3. 
Ten things my church provides for me:


1. Christian worship through which I learn to practice the presence of God.

 2. Christian preaching with its spiritual instruction and its challenge to holy living.

3. Christian ordinances, baptism and the Lord’s Supper, which are continual reminders of the possibility of abundant new life through surrender to God and daily communion with Him.

4. Christian instruction through which I learn to think high thoughts  and discover spiritual truths.

5.  Christian fellowship which will strengthen the best that is in me.

6. Christian evangelistic opportunities through which I can make my life count for God.

7. Christian training opportunities through which I can find myself and grow in the Christian life.

8. Christian service opportunities through which I can make my life more useful to God and humanity.

9. Christian missions through which I can make my influence for good felt throughout the world.

10. Christian stewardship opportunities through which I can express my gratitude to God for His grace in my life.
