What does it mean to get involved at your church? Now for some of us who’ve been around church for a long time, being involved can mean someone attends just about everything that’s going on or is actively contributing to some ministry effort. But involvement for the guest is a lot more tame than that.
People need to become involved by taking one step beyond showing up for Sunday worship. Maybe that step is attending a small group or a midweek Bible study. It could be attending a women’s event or a Sunday school class. The critical step is that they participate in something where they can feel like they are part of something. If a woman attends a women’s event, she now feels a part of the women of the church. Same for a guy in a men’s event or anybody who attends a small group. When I take the second step in a church, my feeling of involvement goes up significantly, unless of course, no one spoke to me or cared that I was there.
