This is not a very guest friendly sign! It doesn't show and communicate the need for putting our guests first. Every Sunday morning, we make sure that all the staff and Sunday morning volunteers park the furthest from the church. We want as many parking spots available for our guests, especially those closest to the church.
Andy Stanley says that "your sermon starts in the parking lot." The parking lot is the first, first impression a guest takes aways with them on Sunday morning.
Here are couple of questions that you need to ask yourself concerning your parking.
Is there someone at the church entrance greeting people, giving them the first wave and smile Sunday morning?
Is there someone out there directing traffic?
Is someone available to help people find parking spaces?
Do you have pre-determined and marked guest parking spots?
