How did this make an impact?

  1. This was a good article, but when I go to a new church I go to listen and learn. I am the person that hates to have strangers talk to me or try to hug me. I know that I should be glad for the recognition, but I hate it.

  2. We also have to be time conscious.

  3. Beautiful.
    I’ve tried the idea of using the welcome card but the culture of writing has not yet picked.

  4. Awesome! Love the article. Very helpful in training a team. Thank you.

  5. Very enlightening.

    Really an eye opening. Thanks.

  7. You can’t communicate the Good News to them if they’re scared and have barriers up. So you need to help them relax!

  8. Wow!l am enlightened! Thank you…

  9. How do you go out and find people to come to church? We fight the battle of kids and families going to sports, or other activities rather than church. Don’t have many young families to help grow the church. Where can I recruit when I don’t have kids inviting their friends?

  10. So good to be reminded of these common sense actions. Thank you

  11. Hello Rick,

    Good ideas for the most part. Number 10 not so much. I have no problems shaking hands with others but then I am a church person and a pastor. Guests not so much. They may feel a little out of place already and a forced greeting and certainly forced hugging could make them feel even more so.
