5. Help our family and friends have a worshipful attitude by speaking kind words to them in the parking lot or in the lobby at church. Save the closest parking spots for the elderly, the handicapped or young moms with small children. Hold the door open for others. If using kind words does not come natural to us, read The Art of the Compliment: Using Kind Words with Grace and Style.
6. Before the service starts, try to find people who are new to the church or who don't appear to know others and befriend them.
7. Attend to our personal needs before the service starts so that we do not have to get up and disturb the worship service.
10. Ask ourselves what we will do with the truth we hear in the sermon. Hearing the truth obligates us to respond to it.
11. One of the best ways to get more out of the Sunday morning service, is to take a turn delivering the sermon. Not only will we learn alot as we prepare, but we will appreciate the effort that others put into preparing. When we appreciate their efforts more, we will pay attention better. To learn how to prepare a sermon as a lay speaker, read Developing Leadership Teams in the Bivocational Church.
