Research shows that between 30 and 50 percent of new members who are baptized do not stick to the church. They fall away. Sometimes we notice only after it has been several months or even years. What happened to them? Where did they go? Why did they leave? And, most importantly, what could we have done to help them stay connected to God’s family?

Welcome to the Family will help you integrate newly baptized members into the local congregation. It involves inviting the entire church, including new members, to attend one program per week over a period of six weeks. These sessions will work like glue to bond people to the church.

Each two-hour program begins with a fellowship meal and music, followed by a time of learning about health, spiritual and church dynamics, and, most importantly, family and relationship issues. Reproducible handouts for each session are included in this manual.

Sessions include:

  • Communication
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Love Works
  • Parenting
  • Growing in Christ
  • Celebrating Your Church Family

Improve new member retention by hosting a Welcome to the Family program in your church and helping all members build friendships, strengthen family bonds, and improve their relationships.

Paperback. Copyright 2015. Includes CD with PowerPoint presentations.
