National “Back to Church Sunday” ( is an initiative that is “Inviting America Back to Church.” It seeks to reach the “un-churched” and “de-churched” people who once attended church, but don’t any more, and invite them to return for a special Sunday. Back to Church Sunday was launched four years ago in response to a survey of 15,000 adults in the United States. Results showed a personal invitation from a family member would prompt 67 percent of Americans to visit a church, and 63 percent said an invitation from a friend or neighbor would cause them to attend a service.

An invitation to attend this special Sunday service has been extended by the First Church of Christ in Cadiz on Sept. 15 at 10:30 a.m. “We want people to know that Jesus through His Churches do a lot of good in our world and in our town” said Paul Giffin, Pastor. First Church of Christ is a non-denominational congregation located at 139 North Main St. in Cadiz. For more information, go to or call 740-942-2235.
