Seven Things You Should Say...
By Pastor Jon Haakana

As our summer begins to wind down and all of us will get back into our regular schedules and routines, I pray that regular worship with your families and your church family is one of those regular and weekly things that you do!

Did you know that on a given Sunday, Mount Olive will average around thirty-five visitors. The one factor that is key to visitors returning to our church and continued growth to happen is when visitors and guests feel welcome in our building and in our worship services.

Last month, I shared ten things you should never say to a guest. As promised, this month I look at the positive perspective: seven things we should say to guests.

1. “Thank you for being here.” It’s just that basic. I have heard from numerous church guests who returned because they were simply told “thank you.”

2. “Let me help you with that.” If you see someone struggling with umbrellas, young children, diaper bags, purses, and other items, a gesture to hold something for them is a huge positive. Of course, this comment is appropriate for member to member as well.
