Don't Go to Church Sunday

We all know about Back to Church Sunday, it's an attempt to invite people back to church. But how about the concept of "Don't Go to Church Sunday?" The concept is that Christians should spend a Sunday attempting to bring Christ out into the world rather than bring people to Christ in the church. They suggest trying to start a Sunday School in a local supermarket or Café. Or perhaps take the entire congregation out a Sunday morning to do some service project that will be meaningful to the neighbourhood.

Of course, both approaches are necessary responses to the Gospel of Jesus, and their juxtaposition tells us something important about the nature of mission.
