Organizers of a national effort to get people back to church are hoping to draw entire communities to the pews.

National Back to Church Sunday is September 18. Spokesman Philip Nation tells OneNewsNow 3,800 churches were involved in last year’s effort, and he expects that number to increase to more than 10,000 churches this year.

He said “The whole impetus is to get members of local congregations re-engaged with inviting their friends, their neighbors [and] their co-workers to come back to church on this one day in the hopes that they will get reconnected with their own spiritual journey toward understanding the gospel and what Christ wants to do in their life.

Nation added, the success of this effort boils down to the individual Christian.
