You are welcome here.
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, filthy rich, or dirt poor. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying babies, rambunctious kids, have it all together, or are falling apart.
We welcome you if you can sing like Garth Brooks or like some of the rest of us, can’t carry a tune in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up, or just got out of jail. We welcome you if you’re more Christian than the John the Baptist, or haven’t been in church since little Joey’s Baptism.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, and junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems, or you’re down in the dumps; if you’re not too sure about the whole religion thing, or if you’ve been in the Church your whole life.
If you’ve got zero dollars for the offering plate, you’re welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, are looking for a church family, or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome seekers, doubters, and believers.
We are a part of the Church of the Nazarene, we believe God invites us all to come to Him, and we welcome you!
