Pilgrim Baptist to host special worship service for Back to Church Sunday

| September 9, 2016

FORT WAYNE—“Back to Church Sunday,” part of a national movement of churches across America, is scheduled to be held at Pilgrim Baptist Church at 11 a.m., Sunday, Sept. 18. Everyone is welcome to attend.

National Back to Church Sunday, (www.backtochurch.com) is an initiative that is “Inviting America Back to Church.” It seeks to reach the “un-churched” and “dechurched”—people who have never attended church, or who once attended church but don’t any more—and invite them to return on Sept. 18.

There are nearly 100 million Americans, including teens and children, who are presently un-churched as people increasingly move away from attending church and practicing religion.

Back to Church Sunday is not just a day—it is a movement to empower church members to invite everyone to come to church. It is designed to help combat the decline of evangelism and church attendance by providing an easily implemented “invite-able” event that gives church members a reason to invite, and gives people a reason to try church again or for the first time. Although it does not have to be the only day that church members are encouraged to invite their friends, family, and neighbors, 84% of churches who participated in Back to Church Sunday last year recognize that having a designated day to invite people plays an important role in motivating members to reach out with an invitation. Back to Church Sunday is a springboard to help churches become outreach-focused throughout the year.

For Back to Church Sunday, Pilgrim Baptist Church will have a special Morning Worship Service at 11 a.m. immediately followed by a Feast in the church lower level. Please RSVP by Sunday Sept. 11 at infopbcfw@yahoo.com or call the church (260) 424- 5416. Pilgrim is a Baptist Church located at 1331 Gay Street in Fort Wayne. For more information, contact the church at (260) 424-5416 or email infopbcfw@yahoo.com.
