There will be some people you don’t know. Some of them are guests. Others are members who attend infrequently.
You have an opportunity to make a gospel impression on these people with a few simple acts. Indeed, you have an opportunity to make an eternal difference. Here are nine servant actions for you to consider.
- Pray as you enter the property. Pray for the guests. Pray for the services. Pray for the pastor and the sermon.
- Park at the most distant spot available. Save the closer parking places for guests.
- Greet people. They may be guests. They may be members. It’s okay to introduce yourself to either.
- Look for people to help. You know the place well. Many others will not. Be a guide. Help someone who looks like he or she needs help.
- Sit as close as possible to the front of the sanctuary. Save the back rows for guests and late entrants, so they don’t have to walk past so many people.
- Sit in the middle. Don’t claim that aisle seat where people have to walk over you or past you.
- Sit closely. Your worship center may be packed. If so, be willing to sit cheek to cheek.
- Volunteer to serve. As the number of attendees increase, so does the need for volunteers. The kids ministry, and church greeter ministry are a few of the areas that will need more volunteers to help serve and minister to members and guests.
- Pray as you leave. The Holy Spirit is likely working in many persons who attended. Pray for His continual work of conviction and comfort.
