How can I help First Church West grow numerically?
Mat 16:16-18 NASB - "16 Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." 17 And Jesus said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 "I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it."
I. Consistently ask God to build up First Church West and make it a healthy, holy and growing fellowship.
II. If there is an empty seat next to you, then pray that the Lord will fill it with a person who needs to grow in God’s grace.
III. Create an “Operation Andrew List”. The Billy Graham ministry uses this method for the purpose of getting people to the crusades. Make a list of people you would like to see come to church in the next twelve months. Write their names on a list and pray daily that they will come to First Church West. Ask the Lord to give them a meaningful invitation to church.
IV. Take the invitation cards provided in the bulletin and pray for the opportunity to use them during the week.
V. If you are on Facebook then “like” the First Church West page and promote it through your social media
VI. Invite people to special events when we hold them.
VII. Be friendly to visitors and let them know you are glad they came.
