Churches Being Thankful

December 2, 2009 by

Sure, our name is Church Marketing Sucks, but above all, we like to see churches getting it right. Thanksgiving is a time when churches tend to stay out of hot-button politics, avoid saying stupid things and do something great. So what better time to celebrate churches being churches.

Take some time with us to celebrate churches communicating the gospel well during Thanksgiving last week:

These churches understand who they are, where they’ve been and what to do next. It’s encouraging to see churches asking these simple questions and responding so sacrificially:

Who are we? We are humans–fallen, forgiven and redeemed. We are saved by grace, and we are thankful.
What does that lead us to do? We will reflect what we know of God to the world. We will accept those who are fallen, and we will show them forgiveness, redemption and grace.

At Church Marketing Sucks, we’re thankful for churches like these, and we’re hopeful that the same clarity will be a hallmark of local churches through Christmas and into 2010.

    …and we were feeling pretty proud of ourselves for collecting 23 bags of groceries for our local food bank. These are really impressive efforts. I’m humbled.

    Geoff, the good news is that there’s some sort of story about a widow and a mite that assures you God’s rejoicing with you, too.
    Thanks for what your church is doing!
