Jennifer’s Papa and Nana, Jeff and Lillian Blackwell, are 88 and 85 years old and live in Granbury, Texas. One of the things on their bucket list is to visit Graystone Church. They have always been huge supporters of Graystone, especially in the early years.
Well, Papa and Nana along with Uncle Kenny and Aunt Lisa are getting on a plane today and flying to Atlanta, Georgia. They will be visiting Graystone Church on Sunday, and I am incredibly honored. Now, Graystone is not the only reason they are coming to Atlanta. They are mainly coming to visit family and see where their kids, grandkids, and great grandkids live, work and play (Gainesvillle, Grayson, and Greenville).
I wonder how many of your friends are wanting to visit Graystone Church. It’s probably not on their bucket list, but they would like to come. They have heard you talk about your church. They have seen you wear the T-shirts and post messages on Facebook. The only thing keeping them from coming is a personal invitation. In fact, they have been hoping you would ask them.
Do you know that 85% of the people who visit Graystone Church come because someone invited them? Who does God want you to invite to church this Sunday? Who knows, it could change their lives for all eternity.
