Back to Church Sunday

Back to Church Sunday“Back to Church Sunday”, part of a national movement of churches across America, will be held at Cool Springs Baptist Church in Tate, near Jasper, Georgia at 11 A.M. September 16, 2012. Everyone is welcome to attend. National “Back to Church Sunday” is an initiative that is “Inviting America Back to Church.” It seeks to reach the “un-churched” and “de-churched” – people who once attended church, but don’t any more – and invite them to return for a special Sunday. Back to Church Sunday was launched four years ago in response to a survey of 15,000 adults in the United States. Results showed a personal invitation from a family member would prompt 67 percent of Americans to visit a church, and 63 percent said an invitation from a friend or neighbor would cause them to attend a service. “In north Georgia, people know about church. What makes a difference is a personal invitation from a friend and a welcoming service when they arrive,” said Justin Grice, Sunday School Director at Cool Springs Baptist Church. Since its inception, National Back to Church Sunday participants have invited more than five million family members, friends, and neighbors to their churches.

“Back to Church Sunday” has an interactive Facebook page and a roster of participating churches on the Back to Church website. You can also contact Cool Springs Baptist Church at 770-735-2799 for more information.
