What is the first impression guests have about your church? Have you considered how their experience looks through their eyes? First Impressions matter because people matter. We hope people will return so they will hear the truth from the Word of God and if they are not already, they will become fully devoted followers of Christ.
First Impressions often occur before the service begins. If the parking lot is chaotic, if the signs are confusing or if church people are unfriendly to new people, your guests’ first impression will be anything but positive. First Impressions happen before the worship service, the reading of Scripture, before a song is sung and before the sermon is preached. It might happen at the entry of your building or in the children’s area. Surveys say that guests make decisions about staying or returning to your church within the first few minutes. Based on your guests’ first impressions in those early moments, are you giving them a reason to return?
Join other churches from across the Greenville Baptist Association to hear how we can make a great first impression on all of our guests. We will begin at 6:00 PM in our Fellowship Hall. To register, contact Stephen Miller.
