(NACOGDOCHES, TX) – “Back to Church Sunday,” part of a national movement of churches across America, will be held at NorthPointe Church of God in Nacogdoches at 10:45 AM September 16. Everyone is welcome to attend.

BTCS has a new theme this year, “You Belong Here,” that is relevant to the felt need in today’s culture. The fact is that 75% of Americans admit to feeling deep loneliness. In addition, the number of Americans with no close friends has tripled since 1985.
Participating churches believe that there has never been a better time than now for people to come back and get plugged in to a church that offers friendships, opportunities to serve the community, and the chance to grow spiritually through a journey of personal faith.
The Back to Church Sunday website includes a roster of participating churches (www.BackToChurch.com/find_a_church), and an interactive Facebook page provides insights and resources for participating churches.
