Getting involved at Focus is easier than ever before! Simply by filling out the form on THIS PAGE, you can start the process. But sometimes, there are areas of service that don’t require any extra effort or time to be more involved. Here are some ideas for this Sunday.
1. Sit Closer to the front - The closer you are to the front of the stage the less distractions will be between you and the words being spoken from Gods word. No other assembly setting has a tougher time filling up the front row than the church. There is nothing more encouraging to a worship leader or speaker than a congregation that is fully engaged and expectant for what God is going to do. Unfortunately, sitting closer doesn’t increase your level of holiness or excuse you from paying your tithe that week, but it does however display a greater sense of expectancy.
2. Bring your bible - Your bible is the equivilent to your hydration bottle at the gym. You can workout without it, but it definetely helps a ton. There is no law or unwritten rules, but your bible in hand shows how serious you are about what is about to happen. Having your bible displays value to Gods word and how it is prioritized in your life. Most people are using iPads or their phones to follow along with the sermon these days, but there is something about a notification free paper bible that allows you to focus on what is being preached about.
3. Show up on time - It is interesting how little time we already spend as a collective body each week. Our average service only last around 70 minutes. In relation to your work week and the time you spend wathing TV, it is actually not that much. For some reason time gets away from us on Sunday mornings and we arrive late to something that is only going to happen once and only last a little over an hour. You can maximize your time in church by simply getting to church on time. Calculating the time it takes to walk from the parking lot and get the kids checked-in will help you realize that you might need to leave 15 minutes earlier than usual.
4. Post On Social Media - One of the most powerful tools in todays world is the web. By engaging with the sermon online, you open up the possibility of people who are not in church seeing what God is doing. One tweet or facebook update can cause someone to click to our churches website and potentially visit the following week. It’s free and painless to post online about what God is doing at Focus. Go ahead. Try it. I dare you. @MyFocusChurch
