Easter is the highest attended Sunday of the year at almost every church. At Cornerstone we typically triple our normal attendance and have added a sunrise service as well as an early regular service. It is the most important Christian celebration of the year.
As someone who attends Cornerstone, it is a great day to do two things, serve and invite. If you are already serving regularly on Sunday morning, I would bet your team leader has already contacted you about Easter. If you are not serving, we could use you.
With all the additional people and the two extra services there are many places to help. We need greeters, ushers, parking lot people, cafe help and so much more.
If you want to serve on Easter Sunday it is easy to let us know. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will get back with you right away.
Now to the part about invite.
There are two thoughts about inviting on Easter Sunday. If you are already serving, invite someone to come serve with you. The best person to ask is someone who is attending Cornerstone who isn’t already serving. This might be the Sunday they realize the difference serving can make to the guests and to those serving.
Easter is also a great Sunday to invite someone you know who isn’t already attending a church to come with you to Cornerstone. I bet you didn’t know that surveys regularly report somewhere between 80% and 90% of all new Christians first came to church because they were personally invited by a friend or relative.
Here is my challenge; write down the names of three people you know who don’t go to church and starting with the first name, just ask. All they can say is no, but you just might be surprised.
Jesus calls us to make disciples. While serving on Easter Sunday or inviting someone to church won’t alone make disciples, it sure can open a door. A door that can lead to next steps you can take to help you and them know more about Jesus.
