Eternity Community Church and the City of McKinney partnered with local congregations Saturday for McKinney’s first city-wide initiative in support of Back to Church Sunday, which is on Sept. 15. Community members from a variety of different denominations came together, reaching out with the simple message and mission of inviting everyone back to church.
In 2012 there were 13,152 churches participating, which has grown to 13,260 nationwide in 2013. After sending out millions of personal invitations, the average annual increase of church attendance spiked by 38%.
