National ?Back to Church Sunday? ( is an initiative that is ?Inviting America Back to Church.? It seeks to reach the “un-churched” and “de-churched”?people who once attended church, but don’t any more?and invite them to return for a special Sunday. Back to Church Sunday was launched four years ago in response to a survey of 15,000 adults in the United States. Results showed a personal invitation from a family member would prompt 67 percent of Americans to visit a church, and 63 percent said an invitation from a friend or neighbor would cause them to attend a service.

Following worship service that afternoon at 4:00 pm ? 8:00 pm in Town Center Park, you are invited to the largest church picnic Kennedale has ever seen! Free Hot Dogs, Kids Bounce Houses & Live Christian Music Entertainment will be provided by all Kennedale Churches.

Since its inception, National Back to Church Sunday participants have invited more than five million family members, friends, and neighbors to their churches.

About 20,000 churches are expected to participate this year, inviting more than two million visitors.

The American Religious Identification Survey showed that 83 percent of American adults identify themselves as Christians. In contrast, another survey by the Barna Group indicated only about 20 percent of Americans attends church on any given Sunday. Back to Church Sunday?s goal is to invite or re-invite America to rediscover church.

?Back to Church Sunday? has an interactive Facebook page ( and a roster of participating churches on the Back to Church website at
