Inviting friends and family to worship with us at sacrament meeting is a great way to share the light and love of the Savior. But sometimes we make it harder than it needs to be.
The Liahona article, “Do’s and Don’ts of Inviting Friends to Church,” provides seven suggestions on how to help friends feel more comfortable accepting the invitation to come to church.
For example, suggestion #4 is to help your friends know what to expect. If your friends accept an invitation to come to church, help them understand what to expect: how they might dress, the purpose and length of each meeting, and what will happen in the meetings—or not happen (for example, donations are not collected during our meetings). You should also explain to them what the sacrament is and what it means. This may help them be more at ease when they come to church.
