Whom are you going to invite to Back to Church? It is time to reach out and invite your friends, family members, and neighbors to church! People need to know that there is a community of people, like our church, who will love them just as they are. Eastern Star Church is joining the National Back to Church Sunday movement to help "Invite America Back to Church” on Sunday September 21st. Did you know that most people who have dropped out of church have not lost their faith in God; rather circumstances of life has caused them to drift away. We encourage you to step out in faith and invite someone to rediscover church. O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in Him. (Psalm 34:8KJV).
