“Back to Church Sunday,” part of a national movement of churches across America, will be held at First Christian Church in Holyoke at 10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 15. Everyone is welcome to attend.
National “Back to Church Sunday” (www.backtochurch.com) is an initiative that is “inviting America back to church.” It seeks to reach the “un-churched” and “de-churched”—people who once attended church, but don’t anymore—and invite them to return for a special Sunday.
Back to Church Sunday was launched four years ago in response to a survey of 15,000 adults in the United States.
Results showed a personal invitation from a family member would prompt 67 percent of Americans to visit a church, and 63 percent said an invitation from a friend or neighbor would cause them to attend a service.
