About two weeks ago, on July 3rd we had a first-time guest to PCC. She filled out a registration card, so we sent her a follow up letter. On the card she also signed up for the Newcomers Luncheon and asked to be baptized. So today one of our staff members gave her a courtesy call regarding her expressed interest in these two events. Her response? “I won’t be back. The people in your church are unfriendly. I have already found another church that I really enjoy.”
Geesh. It’s like she lured us in only to take a pot-shot below the belt. The nerve of some people. And by the way, what kind of person signs up to be baptized on their first visit to any church? I think we dodged a bullet on this one.
