Christian Leadership: Facebook, YouTube Help Extend ‘Power of Personal Invitation’ For Back To Church Sunday

National Back To Church Sunday on Sept. 18 Expands to More Than 7300 Congregations in Third Year


VISTA, Calif., Sept. 12, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ — Thousands of churches across the country are using social media, electronic invitations and "bounce houses" – and some are even overcoming great loss – as they gear up to draw family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to National Back To Church Sunday on Sept. 18.

More than 7,300 churches representing 34 denominations are participating in this third annual nationwide effort to reach out to the unchurched in their communities. Congregations have extended more than 1 million invitations so far, as the big day approaches.

"This cross-denominational outreach is about reigniting the power of personal invitation," said Philip Nation, national spokesman for National Back To Church Sunday. "We're delighted to see the number of churches participating has nearly doubled compared with last year. We anticipate more Americans than ever will rediscover the joy of churchgoing through this grassroots movement."
