All Are Welcome at Macedonia Holiness Methodist Church
Friend Sunday Event
Red Springs NC – Macedonia invites everyone in the community to attend the second annual Friend Sunday service on March 1, 2015. This special service is dedicated to welcoming friends, celebrating friendships, and discovering what it means to be a true friend. Rev Robin Hammonds will be discussing various kinds of friendships that can help carry people through life’s trials, help them celebrate life’s joys, and make life’s journey more meaningful.
Services will be held March 1st 2015 at Macedonia, 3270 N Duffie Rd, Red Springs NC, 28377. Macedonia is just one of thousands of churches across the nation honoring friendship and relationships through Friend Sunday services on this day. The Friend Sunday movement was launched in recognition that the friendship factor is one of the most important reasons people come to church. According to church growth expert Win Arn, a survey of more than 50,000 people over the last 10 years revealed that between 75 and 90 percent of people say they began attending church because someone invited them.
Friend Sunday is designed to give current church attendees a meaningful reason to invite their friends and family and to provide the opportunity for churches to share the many ways they can build community and create opportunities for friendships on an ongoing basis. Of the surveyed churches who participated in Friend Sunday last year, 90 percent reported that having a special day motivated members to invite friends and family.
Macedonia is excited to invite everyone to attend this special day and it hopes to be the place where individuals feel welcomed, supported, and befriended all the time!
