There are so many things that can take us back to “that feeling” you get when you close your eyes and think of home. Perhaps you smile. Do you see something? Do you hear that favorite song? Maybe you hear someone’s special voice, or maybe it’s the smell of grandma’s house or the touch of someone special. These senses are activated during special moments. Remember all the comforts of home? Where you felt safe, where you can remember the sounds, smells, the look of everything? Where love is inside every sense?

Now, how can we activate those senses for the people that walk through the doors of our churches? They are looking for a home on Sundays. So…does it look good, does it smell good and does it feel good? Is it a safe place? In this session, we’ll talk about how you can create a space that makes attendees feel at home.

In the end we have to remember we were once the newcomers to the church and we are being used by God to do some very amazing things to serve people. Our impact can be life changing for how they live life outside of church Monday through Saturday.
