Here’s a great way to provide a welcome speech for church this Sunday! Use these either from the platform as someone shares the welcome verbally or insert them in your church bulletin. Written by a Pastor with over 35 years of ministry experience, they will be a great addition to your follow up efforts to reach your community for Christ!
We wanted to take a moment to welcome each one of you today as we take some time during each one of our services during February to observe Black History Month.
As you know, our heritage is rich with those who have gone before and paid a high price, and often, the ultimate price so that we could enjoy many of the freedoms we have today.
Many years ago, it was our faith that held us together through times of tremendous persecution and even with all the strides that have been made since that time; we believe it is still our faith in God that will carry us through as we forge into the future.
Someone has rightfully said that it’s difficult to know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been. While we have great vision for the future, we must also have an appreciation for the past!
Whether you are visiting with us, or if this is your home church, we want to welcome you to (NAME OF CHURCH)!
The Psalmist said these words; Psalm 122:11 “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.”
We trust you will enjoy your time here today at (NAME OF CHURCH) as we lift up the Name of Jesus Christ together in unity!
Psalm 122:1 says; I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. Isn’t it great to be in the house of the Lord today?
Most likely you are like the rest of us here last year full of many challenges many victories. I have no doubt there are many things you would like to forget hopefully there are many more things you want to remember.
Welcome to Church on the First Sunday of the New Year!
It’s time for new beginnings! It’s time for a fresh start! It’s time to make some resolutions!
These are often statements that are made by most people at the beginning of a new year, and we as Christians are not really all that different! Who wants to remain the same as before? I know I don’t, because I want to continue to grow in the Lord, as well as put off some of those things that have held me down for being all He wants me to be. Yet, we all struggle just a bit in our endeavor to move forward as failings and difficulties from the past create a “drag” on the vision for the future! I’m reminded of a wonderful scripture that helps me each time those thoughts come into my mind: Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view and/or copy full text!
Grace and peace to you from our Lord Jesus Christ! Happy New Year to all the members of our congregation, church staff, and all of you visiting with us today. We are thrilled that you have chosen to wake up early and rejoice in this new year of life with us at INSERT NAME OF CHURCH HERE.
Welcome to our New Year’s Eve Watchnight Service! We are thrilled you have chosen to worship with us on the last evening of (YEAR) as we close out the year together in Thanksgiving and welcome (NEW YEAR) with anticipation!
Philippians 3:13-14 (NIV) 13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
