Inviting someone to church doesn’t have to be complicated, just send a text. Copy one of these examples, fill in the blanks, and invite a friend to The Hills.

Sample Texts:

  1. “Hey, are you going to church anywhere right now? I thought you could join me at The Hills Church this week.” (Or, “We could watch online together at my house this week.”)
  2. “Hey, would you be up for going to church with me this week? I go to The Hills Church at [service time].”
  3. “Hey, my church has some great content on the topic we were talking about this afternoon. Here’s a link https://anchor.fm/the-hills-church.”
  4. “Hey, my kids love The Hills Kids. I was thinking you and [their child’s name] could join us this weekend. Here’s a link to a [your child’s name] favorite YouTube video from The Hills Kids so you can get a feel for what their services are like. Let me know if you’re up for it!”

3. Start a Conversation

Resist the urge to correct, belittle church-hurt, or defend your beliefs. Instead, listen for meaning, seek to understand, validate them, care for what people have been through, and have an open/respectful conversation about each other’s beliefs. 


Conversation Starters:

  • – Did you grow up going to church with anyone? (Explore the topic)
  • – Do you go to church now? Where at? Or why not? (Explore the topic)
  • – Have you ever thought about going again? (Explore the topic)

With each question, remember, this is a conversation, not a sales pitch for church. The most important thing is getting to know this person and caring for them.

4. Engage Our Community

When we start a conversation, care for, embrace, and reach out to our neighbors, the barista, the check-out clerk, our kids’ teachers, and our coworkers we open the door for friendship and spreading the Gospel. 

Examples of Engaging Your Community:

  • – Pray for your neighbors every day as you pass their homes on the way to and from work.
  • – Take every opportunity to show care (mow lawns, shovel snow, rake leaves, bring cookies, write notes).
  • – Ask questions: Resist the urge to make every conversation about you. Ask about their lives first. 

When you start engaging the people around you, you’ll have more opportunities to share the life and stories of Jesus.
