Church first expression
I was visiting Jeff Owens church in west Virginia it was a blessing to be on vacation and attend a church that preaches the truth. As we arrived there was a parking space just for visitors instead of the stress of looking for a parking spot it was nice to have people put visitors first the church serves the people
My first stop was the nursery we had people instruct
us how to get there we didn't have to look around for help.The ushers were all in the same green jackets
As we arrived at the nursery they had us fill out a form about the child and gave her id making us feel like the baby is important the nursery was clean and the workers were kind
And after it was easy to find the auditorium many people greeted us thanking us for coming to their church.
Pastor Owens had his people take the names of new comers and where they are from and during announcement Jeff Owens would have his people stand and introduce the visitors that makes it easier on people that find it difficult to speak in large groups.
.We sat where ever we wanted too. In some churches that's not the case and sometimes we loose people not letting them feel comfortable.
Pastor Jeff Owens preached a good message on this was the title
after alot got saved and
baptized as we were leaving a family gave us brownies that had
a tag welcome to the church
They also gave us a pen
What do people think the first time they come to our churches across the nation?
churches should serve not be served.
It was a blessing watching what God is doing in another church.
