Our next INVITATION MONTH is coming up in just a few weeks, and we have some exciting things planned for you and your family to enjoy during the month of October. But these events are not just designed for our own enjoyment. They are designed as TOOLS for you to use to invite a friend of family member to church with you.
#1 - START TO PRAY FOR PEOPLE TODAY
Think about who would be most likely to attend church with you and accept an invitation to join you during this upcoming month. Start to pray for them every day. Ask God to bless them with His presence. Pray that God would meet their needs. Ask God to prepare their hearts to receive your invitation and to understand the wonderful message about the transformatative love of Jesus Christ.
#2 - THINK STRATEGICALLY ABOUT YOUR INVITE
These weeks are designed with different people in mind.
- Season Pass Weekend (Sept 29-30) - this is especially for families who might have kids who would want to join UPWARD BASKETABALL. We are offering both discounted registration for those who attend and a chance to WIN a free season pass (no registration for Upward). At the Deer Lakes Campus - this is our GRAND OPENING and those who attend their have an opportunity to win a TICKETS TO STEELERS GAMES FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON.
- Special Musical Guests Weekend (Oct 6-7) - Anita Levels will be back again to sing and lead worship at the Hampton Campus with our own APC Frontline Choir & Aaron Schweinberg will be leading worship at the Deer Lakes Campus.
- Black & Gold Weekend (Oct 13-14) - Wear your jersey. Fun kids games after the service in the Concourse (Hampton) and in the Parking Lot (Deer Lakes). Former Steeler's Jeff Hartings and Steve Avery will be interviewd in service.
- CandyTown Weekend (Oct 20-21) - Kids will be able to win candy/prizes and go through our LIFE-SIZE CANDY GAME at both the Deer Lakes Campus and the Hampton Campus.
#3 - PLAN MORE THAN JUST AN INVITE TO CHURCH
Consider inviting them out to dinner with you after the service, or to come back to your home for lunch? Make it more than just an invite to church - but rather an invite to have a good time with you and your family.
Let's believe God for an amazing month where many people experience Christ!
