Valley Falls Christian Church to hold Back-to-Church Sunday

“Back-to-Church Sunday,” part of a national movement of churches across America, will be held at Valley Falls Christian Church at 10 a.m. Sept. 18. Everyone is welcome to attend.

National “Back To Church Sunday” is an initiative that seeks to reach the “un-churched” and “de-churched” — people who once attended church, but don’t any more — and invite them to return for a special Sunday.

It was launched three years ago in response to a survey of 15,000 adults in the United States. Results showed a personal invitation from a family member would prompt 67 percent of Americans to visit a church, and 63 percent said an invitation from a friend or neighbor would cause them to attend a service.

“God invented the church. It is his plan to help us connect with him and with each other. We just want to help as many people as possible discover, or rediscover that plan,” said Mike Kirby, pastor.

Since its inception, National Back To Church Sunday participants have invited more than 3 million family members, friends and neighbors to their churches. About 7,000 churches are expected to participate this year, inviting more than 1 million visitors.

The Valley Falls Christian Church is an independent church located at 511 Oak Street. For more information, go to valleyfallscc.org or call 945-6757.
