Whether we’re celebrating, grinding, resting, or grieving – our lives naturally ebb and flow according to what we’re experiencing. But often we focus on what we see on the outside – rather than how we’re responding emotionally and spiritually on the inside.

So how can we fully embrace the gifts of our current life season?

Join us every Sunday, starting June 19, as we start a brand new series called Seasons. Together, we’ll uncover how to find the meaning of every stage of life.

Would you be interested in joining me on Sundays, starting June 19, at [CAMPUS] at [TIME]?

You’re invited to @echochurchlive on Sunday, June 19 for Seasons!

 Check out echo.church/seasons/ for more times/locations, or feel free to DM me with any questions. Hope you’ll join us!!

TIPS FOR INVITING OTHERS

  1. BE YOURSELF. Don’t overthink it! Use words that feel natural to how you usually talk.

  2. THINK OF OTHER CIRCLES OF PEOPLE. Invite people from communities you’re involved in outside of church, like:
    • teams at work
    • neighbors
    • interest-based Facebook groups
    • group text threads
    • family chat threads

  3. CONSIDER BOTH IN-PERSON OR VIRTUAL. Some ways you can invite people (including virtually) include:
    • during a hangout or conversation
    • text or call
    • email
    • social media DM / message (Facebook, Instagram, etc.)
    • share Echo’s social media posts (@echochurchlive on Facebook, Instagram, etc.)
    • post on social media newsfeeds/groups/stories (Facebook, Instagram, etc.)

  4. IDENTIFY A NEED. Think about a specific issue the person may be looking for answers about or struggling with, and speak to that.
A NOTE ON RESPONSES:
  • If they accept, that’s great! If you’re available, attend or watch the Sunday message at the same time as the person you invited. Then check in with them afterwards on their thoughts.
  • If they decline, don’t feel bad! Continue to establish a relationship with the person, and keep praying for them
