REACHING EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD
TO INVITE EVERY PERSON
National Back to Church Sunday is the largest annual community-based church outreach effort in the nation. The campaign will empower your church and members with the tools they need to invite their neighbors, friends and loved ones back to church, while providing an easy way for everyone in the community to find a welcoming church! This year’s theme, A Place to Belong, encourages people to seek out their local church as a place for fellowship, community, sanctuary, and respite. It also encourages churches to re-envision themselves as beacons of light in the community and a place where friends and neighbors can come together in times of joy, challenge and struggle—a place for everyone to belong!
