What is Back to Church Sunday?
It is the single largest annual community outreach in the nation, sharing the simple message and mission of inviting everyone in America Back To Church. The campaign empowers churches and church members with the tools they need to welcome their neighbors, friends and loved ones back to church, while providing the unchurched with an easy way to find a welcoming church in their community
Why Should My Church Participate?
Last year over 7600 churches participated in the third year of this growing national movement and on average saw a 25% increase in their attendance on that day! This year we are praying for 10,000 churches to band together and bring spiritual renewal to their communities through Back to Church Sunday!
