10 Reasons to Come Back to Church This Sunday

April 9, 2015 — 2 Comments

As I reflected on last Sunday (Easter) and this Sunday (the week after Easter). This list came to mind.

Here are 10 Reasons to Come Back to Church This Sunday

10. Not as crowded, so you’ll have an easier time finding a parking space, a seat, and a doughnut in the cafe.

7. You’ll hear a sermon on something other than the resurrection or birth of Jesus. (I’m starting a series entitled, Journey to the Ends of the Earth.)

6. You won’t have to “answer” that true–but slightly annoying–Easter “jingle” a gazillion times, “He is Risen!” to which you have to respond “He is risen indeed!” immediately or risk being branded a Pagan or worse….an Oakland Raiders Fan!

5. You’ll get the chance to take “regular” communion and not the kind of communion you need a degree in engineering to enjoy.

4. You’ll make your Mom happy, because when she asks you on Sunday afternoon, “Did you go to church this morning?” you’ll be able to say, “Yes!”

3. You’ll discover that the coffee is still free.

2. Peeps! No…not those Peeps! You’ll get the chance to get to know some of the amazing and interesting people (aka Peeps!) you met last week and start to build lasting and meaningful relationships. Just don’t try to eat them or put them in the microwave for 45 seconds! 🙂

1. You won’t get hit in the head with a beach ball! (It’s a Journey & Mosaic thing, you wouldn’t understand!)
