This year’s theme for the city of McKinney’s 1st Annual National Back To Church Sunday Campaign is “City On Our Knees,” written by recording artist Toby Mac.
The City of McKinney is unique by nature and we want the world to know this community is anchored in the word of God. This city will stand on the word of God which is a lamp to our feet. We will not allow our principles to compromise our faith, family, and this community.
National Back to Church Sunday is an amazing opportunity to share God’s love, as it empowers church members to be the strongest form of outreach through the power of personal invitations. We are forming a coalition of churches in McKinney to partner with Eternity Community Church of McKinney.
In only four years, Back to Church Sunday has become the single largest community outreach in the nation, with 13,152 churches participating in 2012 alone. 7.5 million people received a personal invitation to church and the average increase was 38 percent. So far in 2013, more than 13,260 Churches Nationwide are participating, sharing in the simple message and mission of inviting everyone Back to Church.
The rally details have been finalized and ready for distribution among the city of McKinney churches and local businesses. We have secured an awesome lineup of powerful speakers and Christian bands, Praise and Worship leaders.
Due to a scheduling conflict to secure Town Lake, we have moved the location to McKinney Finch Park which is located at 301 West Standifer.
We are looking forward to the fellowship, food and fun for the entire family. So bring your lawn chairs and hearts of expectation to usher in the presence of God over this community. In the book of Ezekiel 48:35 it states “and the name of the city from that time on will be the Lord is there”.
Date: Sept. 7
(The official National Back To Church Sunday is scheduled for September 15th at participating churches.)
Location: Finch Park 301 West Standifer
Time: 1-6 p.m.
