I continue to appreciate the work of Lovett Weems and the entire team at the Lewis Center for Church Leadership. The offer a great number of resources for pastors, congregations, students and denominations at http://www.churchleadership.com. I wanted to draw your attention to Leading Ideas – a biweekly newsletter from the Lewis Center. You can find more information here.
One of the recent great articles was about the Top 10 Learnings about Welcoming Newcomers.
At Resurrection, we try to have excellent hospitality – in worship, events, service, small groups – nearly anything that is connected with the church. How do you welcome newcomers at your church?
