Invite a Friend to Church this Sunday

It is said that the most effective way to bring people into the church is by offering a personal invitation.

Unfortunately, it can often be nerve-wracking to start that conversation, especially if you're not sure what kind of response you may get. As you get ready for Invite a Friend Sunday (this Sunday, July 23), we would like to offer you a few tips on how you might reach out and invite those for whom Cathedral of Hope might be a new source of joy and community.

Helpful Tips:

1) Frame the Conversation: Not sure how to start the conversation? Try beginning with a simple question. Questions like "I'm curious, do you go to church anywhere?" or "Did you ever go to church when you were a kid?" are often a good way to begin a conversation about church attendance. If you find out that they are happily invested in another church community, you can spend time discussing what brings you joy in your individual faith communities. If they don't have a church home, try the simple phrase "I go to Cathedral of Hope! If you are ever looking for a church, I'd love to take you with me!"

2) Share What You Love: People carry all kinds of assumptions about what 'church' means. Often, all you have to do is share a little piece of what you love about your faith community to change assumptions and pique interest. Luckily, there is a lot to love about Cathedral of Hope. From the outstanding music, preaching and worship on Sunday and Wednesday, to all kinds of opportunities to serve, to the message of God's radical love for all people, Cathedral of Hope provides a unique and vibrant example of what church can offer in someone’s life.

3) Make a day of it: Sometimes, a church visitor might be nervous about even walking through the front door of the church. When making an invitation, consider making a day of it by offering to pick up your guest for church and by inviting them to brunch or lunch after worship. Not only does this ease the anxiety of walking into a new place all alone, but it also offers you an opportunity to build those lasting connections that are so essential for community.

In & Out: Invite
Rev. Dr. Neil G. Cazares-Thomas

This Sunday, we continue our In & Out sermon series by exploring the topic "Invite".

Throughout this series, we will remember Jesus' Great Commission to go out into the world to proclaim and affirm the Good News. Each week, we will be invited to explore where we find ourselves spiritually and encouraged to live our faith to the fullest, both inside and outside of the church.

Summer Roadtrip: A Night of Praise and Worship

CoH is going on a road trip! The highway of life is often filled with potholes and detours, dirty rest stops and missed exits, but it is also often filled with beautiful sights, faithful companions, and unexpected adventures. Join us this June as the rubber hits the road and we embark on a journey of faith!
