5 Ways to BLESS your Church Family in 2023

It’s hard to BLESS others if you’re not around them. One of the best ways to BLESS your church family is by showing up weekly and offering your gifts or encouragement to the other believers. The apostle Paul knew that the church functioned best when all the believers were together. We need you, we want you, and your presence here is a blessing to us! 

2. PRAY. 
Pray for our pastors and leaders. Pray that God’s Spirit would flow in and through our people.  Ask someone near you on a Sunday if there’s anything you can specifically pray for them. I’ve never seen someone turn down a request to be prayed for. It’ll BLESS them and give you a chance to reconnect with them next Sunday to follow up. 
1 Peter 4:10 – Peter says we can extend God’s grace (or BLESSing) thru serving others with the gifts He’s given us! 
Small groups are not the only place to find community in and around the church. However, they do provide the opportunity to connect with others and grow in our faith. Small groups are one of the few places outside of serving in a ministry where you get to know and share with other believers. 
Coming to church can be easy. If you want to, you can sneak in the back, sneak out at the end of the service and few people will know you’re here. We’re called to not just come to church. We’re called to be the church. Practicing hospitality means we do it more than once, we get better at it, and it becomes easier over time.
