Is it Biblical to invite people to church?
It is common today to hear Christians encouraging each other to invite people to church.
But I find it interesting that I can't find an example in the Bible of Christians inviting people to church.
In fact, searches for "to church", "at church", "our church", "after church" come up empty.
I wonder if the early church had a different way of sharing Jesus with others that didn't have inviting them to church near the top of the list.
Doesn't this seem strange? I'd love to hear your thoughts on why? Or am I missing something?
BTW: I don't conclude something is wrong just because I can't find it in the Bible. I think Sunday mornings can be one of many times and places to meet with the church. I just question if the event, building or organization should be called church.

I do not believe the final judgement will be based on how many correct answers we get on a theology exam. I believe many people throughout history have had genuine relationships with our Lord and Saviour Jesus, despite holding questionable beliefs and practices. I make no claim to having it all figured out or being your judge. If we end up disagreeing over these topics I pray we can find a way to demonstrate grace.
