We’re looking at the 80/20 Rule that thrives in most US churches. What expectations do you communicate with those who gather at your weekend services?

Park here. Don’t smoke in the building. Sign in your kids. Leave your coffee outside the sanctuary. Give, if you’re comfortable. Take part in this class, that event, the other small group experience. Please come back!

You can boil down the “contract” you make with your folks this way: “Just come back; we’ll take care of everything.”

If they do return, they do exactly what you’ve asked: nothing. Usually, this goes on for years.
