ABOUT NATIONAL BACK TO CHURCH SUNDAY
National Back to Church Sunday Started as a call to action and invitation – action for the church, invitation for the world. A single-day event focused on extending the invitation of love, peace, and hope to our friends and neighbors. A single day to reclaim the true nation of Church – exactly as Christ commanded.
National Back to Church Sunday began in 2009 as church attendance in America was declining and church leaders began to look for ways to involve their congregations in reaching out and inviting friends, neighbors and coworkers to come back to, or try church for the first time.
Each September since then, we have set aside the third Sunday in September as the day to encourage everyone to attend a Bible-based church in their area and for church leaders to create a welcoming, inviting environment for their visitors.
Incredibly, since 2009, more than 4-million Christ-followers have participated through over 40,000 churches…and the movement continues to grow.
Now, more than ever, people need Jesus and a caring community where they can belong, grow and flourish. This September, we would love for you to be a part of introducing your community to Jesus, so they can experience His hope and reconnect with others during National Back to Church Sunday!
It’s time to love again, serve again, and HOPE again.
