INVITE BOLDLY

When you experience something as good as God’s love,
you want to share it with the people in your life!
Invite your Little Iowa of family, friends, neighbors and co-workers into
your life and Prairie Lakes Church so they can see Jesus at work in you.


  • We invite people because we love them and want them to experience the God that loves them. We don’t invite people in an attempt to “fix them” or simply because our pastor asked us to.

  • You don’t have to be perfect. None of us are! Your Little Iowa needs authentic, imperfect people pointing them to Jesus who loves them no matter what.

  • If your family and friends aren’t ready for church, continue inviting them into other areas of your life. If you’ve invited them into your hobbies, home, and family, church will feel more like a natural next step.

  • It’s ok if they say, “no.” We are responsible for the invitation, not the response. Continue inviting them into your life; you’ll probably get to invite them again!

  • If you can’t think of someone to invite, take some time to think and pray about the people you encounter every day at work, in your neighborhood, or places you visit. You may be surprised by who God places in your path for a new conversation.

  • Be patient, but don’t miss it!
