    I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the valuable information you provided me with. Your insights and knowledge have been incredibly helpful, and I appreciate the time and effort you put into sharing your expertise with me.

    Thanks to your guidance, I now have a much better understanding of the subject matter, and I feel much more confident moving forward. I am truly grateful for your willingness to help me and for being such a supportive resource.

  2. If you’re new to a community or organization, getting plugged in can be intimidating, but it’s worth the effort. Here are six reasons why newcomers should make the effort to get involved:

    Build relationships and make new friends
    Gain knowledge and experience
    Discover opportunities for personal and professional growth
    Make a positive impact in the community
    Develop a sense of belonging and identity
    Have fun and enjoy new experiences
    Don’t be afraid to take that first step and get involved. You never know where it may lead you!

  3. Great post on the importance of getting plugged in as a newcomer! Building relationships, finding support, and opportunities for growth are all key benefits of becoming involved in a community. Thanks for sharing!

  5. very nice information you share with us. thanks for this.

  6. No one is immune to temptation. Given the right situation, you and I are capable of any sin. God knows this, so he has assigned us as individuals the responsibility of keeping each other on track.

    I was so blessed reading some of Pastor Rick Warren teaching. This will help me teaching our church members for them to know and learn many about their task as members of the local church. I love to read books and teaching materials like what you did. Because I also want to learn many thing being a pastor.

    Thank GOD for you and your teaching ministry. You teach in a way that’s understandable, and easy to comprehend. Your book, The Purpose Driven Church is always not too fare from me when I am studying GOD’S WORD. May GOD continue to Bless you and your work..

  17. Ooopps. My last post was mistakenly sent here. Sorry

  18. Very friendly. Enjoyed chatting with him even for a short time

  19. Wow! What an awesome message , this is a revival it self, I feel that I’m far behind the true love of God , there’s a lot I need to improve in . Pastor you equipped me and you showed me how to do things in the true sense of God, sometimes when one of us moved back we don’t worry about her or him we just say when she /he is right will come back forgetting that Jesus left 99 sheep and look for one which was missing, we practised a selfishness practice , so this message reminds me to not being selfish, as long as things are going ok on my side I forget about other people ‘s lives , as from today I will go and talk to every Christian who backslide no matter what the reason is he /she must come back to God.

  20. I love listening to you you have helped me so much my life was a mess about 4 or 5 yrs ago I started listening to you and how you explain the Bible it has really helped I have wrote you before and you never answer back that was a little discouraging because there is a lot more I just loss my mother about 8 weeks ago that’s been very hard
    Thank you Pastor Rick

    Sir, in case you have tried your best as a minister to get the attenders to be committed but they keep on giving flimsy excuses and only to discovered that he or she has moved to other church. What I do sir?

  22. I attend a church where we have very active church attenders but not members for years, is this ok? i.e. they are in worship ministry, pastor assistance, Then after many years they become members. Why is this? And is this ok spiritually for the church?

  23. Thank you for that message. I am a Catholic/Christian. I started attending Christian Church this April. Since I am still new I get off track in my commitment. Im a shy person , most of the time quiet. You mentioned that the members should responsibly bring them back to fellowship, the person who invited me to that fellowship kinda left me on my own. I don’t know what to do. Please help

    • Take the bold step and approach one of the ushers or a member to guide and direct you about the church you are attending, tell them you are new to the church and would like to know what ministries/events/fellowship they have to offer for example do they have a visitors welcome section at he church? All the best.

      Hey Joyce

      I can deffinetly relate to your current situation. I am also extremely new to following Jesus Christ, as well as attending church. It’s only been about 8 months I’d say, since I became a believer. It was actually my Ex boyfriend who who played an important part in me meeting Jesus and also introducing me to the church I now attend. I was led to Christ and now unfortunately have been (for lack of a better word) abandoned, now left to figure out how to move forward spiritually. I too can be incredibly shy and reserved, which makes talking to people at church rather tricky.

      I know you said the person who originally brought you to church left you hanging. I have been thinking quite a lot how God sends specific people into our lives in order for us to reach our next step. I know that was certainly the case with my Ex. He helped bring me to Christ and now I am left standing with no current spiritual leader. The same could be true for you. Perhaps that person’s job was only meant to get you into the right church and now you too are left standing until God sends the next helper.

      This of course is just a thought. And having a support system, as I am now learning for myself, is truly vital in our walk with God. I know this wasn’t the advice you were seeking but just know you are not alone. Be patient and trust in God. Even if this person has left you in a lurch, God is still with you. Maybe for now, you can work on getting comfortable with this church? Gain a feel for the people and the atmosphere first. Then you can ease into a conversation with the other people who attend.
