Connecting with New People

I have shared before (click here for “How to host a Newcomer’s Reception”) that we love hosting regular Newcomer’s Receptions at The Journey.  Not to overstate the obvious, but connecting new people are vital to any growing church.  These receptions are a great time to meet new people and give them an extra opportunity to connect with the church.

Yesterday’s reception at The Journey was no exception.  I got to meet over 100 new people to our church and we all really enjoyed the time.  The success of these gatherings got me thinking that I’d like to share a little more information about how we do it.  Here are a couple of the emails we use to communicate with people about the Newcomer’s Reception:

Are you doing a Newcomer’s Reception?  Why not put one on the calendar and give it a shot?  Have a great week!
