Paradise First Assembly of God Joins Thousands of Churches to Participate in
National Back to Church Sunday on Sept. 18
PARADISE, CA – “Back to Church Sunday,” part of a national movement of churches across America, will be held at Paradise First Assembly of God in Paradise at 10:30 September 18. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Now in its eighth year, the National Back to Church Sunday movement continues gain momentum, with over thousands of churches representing 120 denominations expected to participate this year. It is a day focused on uniting the church to equip and empower members to be inviters. Eight out of ten people say they are open to visiting church if invited—they are just waiting for an invitation.
For Back to Church Sunday, Paradise First Assembly of God will have a special service that features: Giveaways for new and returning guests, free Starbucks coffee, pony rides after service, and a barbecue.
BTCS has a new theme this year, “Now’s the Time,” that is relevant to both churchgoers and those who do not attend church. In a time when terrorism plagues our freedom and the current culture threatens our religious liberties, the need for the church and God’s favor is greater than ever. The theme “Now’s the Time,” is based on 2 Corinthians 6:2, which reads, “….Now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.” Participating churches believe that there has never been a better time than now to come back and get plugged in to a church that offers a place to belong, opportunities to serve the community, and the chance to grow spiritually through a journey of personal faith.
The Back to Church Sunday website includes a roster of participating churches www.BackToChurch.com/find_a_church, and an interactive Facebook page provides insights and resources for participating churches.
