I visited a church recently. It was a good church. The Bible readings were good. The Bible teaching was outstanding. The prayers were good. But my experience was not great. It was not a welcoming church.
When I walked into the front door of the church, there was no sign and there was no one there to guide visitors to where they should go. In this large church complex I couldn’t see where the congregation was. As I walked further in there were a bunch of people milling about who were from another congregation. I stopped and looked around. Where was this congregation I was looking for?! I kept searching and down a corridor I found it. Not a great start.
