Church Welcome – First Sunday of Year

On this first Sunday of (YEAR), we want to welcome you today to (Name of Church)!

Whether you are here in person or watching online, we pray that you will take the time to put aside the distractions of this past week, and even past year and get your focus on Jesus!

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?

Church Welcome Speech (New Year)

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.

It might seem ironic that we enter our new year in the height of the winter season, a season of dormancy, drab landscapes, and empty fields.


Church Welcome Speech – Move Forward!

(Great welcome for first service of a new year too)

Welcome to Worship Service!

We want to take a few moments today to remind you of the importance of believing all God says about you, and the freedom you can (and should) enjoy as you enter this time of Worship.

Too many people are allowing their present environment and outlook on life to be influenced by their past experiences, yet
