AT UNCOMMON CHURCH

WE EXTEND A SPECIAL WELCOME TO THOSE WHO ARE SINGLE, MARRIED, DIVORCED, GAY, STRAIGHT, FILTHY RICH, DIRT POOR, NO HABLAN INGLÉS. WE EXTEND A SPECIAL WELCOME TO THOSE WHO ARE CRYING NEWBORNS, BROKEN HEARTED, OR IN NEED OF A SAFE PLACE.

WE WELCOME YOU IF YOU CAN SING LIKE ANDREA BOCELLI OR LIKE MANY OF US WHO CANʼT CARRY A NOTE IN A BUCKET. YOUʼRE WELCOME HERE IF YOUʼRE JUST BROWSING, JUST WOKE UP OR JUST GOT OUT OF JAIL. WE DONʼT CARE IF YOU BELIEVE IN GOD OR IF YOUʼVE NEVER BEEN TO CHURCH.

WE EXTEND A SPECIAL WELCOME TO THOSE WHO ARE OVER 60 BUT NOT GROWN UP YET, AND TO TEENAGERS WHO ARE GROWING UP TOO FAST. WE WELCOME SOCCER MOMS, NASCAR DADS, STARVING ARTISTS, TREE-HUGGERS, LATTE-SIPPERS, VEGETARIANS, JUNK-FOOD EATERS. WE WELCOME THOSE WHO ARE IN RECOVERY OR STILL ADDICTED. WE WELCOME YOU IF YOUʼRE HAVING PROBLEMS OR YOUʼRE DOWN IN THE DUMPS OR IF YOU DONʼT LIKE ORGANIZED RELIGION, WEʼVE BEEN THERE TOO.

IF YOU BLEW ALL YOUR OFFERING MONEY PARTYING, YOUʼRE WELCOME HERE. WE OFFER A SPECIAL WELCOME TO THOSE WHO THINK THE EARTH IS FLAT, WORK TOO HARD, DONʼT WORK, CANʼT SPELL, OR BECAUSE GRANDMA IS IN TOWN AND WANTED TO GO TO CHURCH.

WE WELCOME THOSE WHO ARE inked, PIERCED OR BOTH. WE OFFER A SPECIAL WELCOME TO THOSE WHO COULD USE A PRAYER RIGHT NOW, HAD RELIGION SHOVED DOWN YOUR THROAT AS A KID OR GOT LOST IN TRAFFIC AND WOUND UP HERE BY MISTAKE. WE WELCOME TOURISTS, SEEKERS AND DOUBTERS, BLEEDING HEARTS ... AND YOU!

WE ARE UNCOMMON – RESCUED BY CHRIST – AND WE LOVE YOU.

This is what we give to our first time guests as a welcome letter... and it is truly how we feel. We got this idea from a great church in Pueblo, CO. Feel free to use it for your church as well! You can find out more about about Uncommon Church by clicking here!
