Do Church-Hunters Use the Internet?

Dec 13, 2004

Some do–at least in eastern Pennsylvania. The following excerpt is from a weekly e-mail Pastor Scott Distler of the Lititz, PA Grace Brethren Church sends to all who request it. Is YOUR church’s website being kept up-to-date and infused with fresh material? Maybe someone is visiting your site to see if your church is for them!


This past Sunday I met three different people whose first encounter with our church was listening to sermons via the internet. I also received this note this past week from someone within our church:

“I wanted to let you know that this past Sunday I met a man, his wife and three children in the halls of the church. Not looking familiar to me, I asked him his name and discovered that it was only his second visit to our church. When I asked him how they found our church, he said that he had heard one of your sermons on the internet and was “captivated”, and decided to come and visit.”

Make sure that you check all that is available at our website ( so that you can use it to connect people you know to Grace Church!
