About Back-to-Church Sunday

National Back-to-Church Sunday Started as a call to action and invitation – action for the church, invitation for the world. A single-day event focused on extending the invitation of love, peace, and hope to our friends and neighbors. A single day to reclaim the true nation of Church – exactly as Christ commanded. It all began in September 2009 as church attendance in America was declining and church leaders began to look for ways to involve their congregations in reaching out and inviting friends, neighbors and co-workers to come back to, or try church for the first time.

Each September since then, the third Sunday in September has been set aside as the day to encourage everyone to attend a Bible-based church in their area and for church leaders to create a welcoming, inviting environment for their visitors.

Now, more than ever, people need Jesus and a caring community where they can belong, grow and flourish. This September, we would love to introduce our community to Jesus,  so they can  experience His hope and reconnect with others during National Back-to-Church Sunday! It’s time to love again, serve again, and HOPE again. HOPE happens here!
“Hope is a match in a dark tunnel, a moment of light,
just enough to reveal the path ahead and ultimately the way out.”
-Judith Rich

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord,
plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."
-Jeremiah 29:11
Let's share the hope we have in Jesus by inviting family, friends, and neighbors back to church!
