In their book, The 1 Thing, Thom and Joani Schultz tell the story of a worship committee that wanted to make their church more inviting to guests. To do this they began by looking for things that might be a hindrance to newcomers. The first thing they noticed was that current members seemed to arrive just before the service began and rushed out right afterward. They also noticed that while there was a coffee pot downstairs in the fellowship hall every Sunday, visitors didn’t know about it. To change this, the committee moved the coffee pot up to the lobby outside the sanctuary. Then they invited members to linger after worship for coffee before going home. The plan worked. People began to hang around after worship, and the lobby became a friendly place not only for guests, but also for members. But not all the members were happy with the change.
