9 Groups of People Your Church Isn’t Reaching

9 Groups of People Your Church Isn’t Reaching

Having a church family is an important part of your walk with Christ. We need that spiritual rejuvenation every Sunday, and the relationships with people who will encourage us to grow in our knowledge of God’s word and to be more Christ-like. We need our churches because we need a place where we can be around like-minded people and a place where we can be challenged to strengthen our faith.

However, that isn’t the only purpose for a church. A church is also supposed to reach people for Christ, and while most of our churches are doing a great job of that, there could be some people groups that we aren’t reaching as well as we could be.

As you read about these 9 groups of people, ask yourself- could our church do better at reaching these people? Could I do better reaching out to these people, being more aware of them as I come and go from church?

1. Shut-ins

I feel like this is something churches used to do that has kind of fallen off a bit. When I was a little kid, my church had a ministry that reached out to these people and helped them by bringing groceries, having a bible study with them, or just giving them someone to talk to for a little while. Maybe I’m wrong, but it feels like churches in general have slowed down on this. If these ministries still exist, I haven’t heard about them in awhile. This is an entire group of people our churches could easily reach with minimal effort.
