runninmommy Posted June 26, 2009 Share Posted June 26, 2009 We have been visiting various churches in the area, trying to find a church home. Three of the pastors from various churches have come to our house unannounced. We have only been to each church once or twice. We live WAAAAY out in the country. Down a long drive on several acres. With no trespassing signs all over. We are very private people and do not like unannounced visitors at all. I could understand if we were members and needed something or if they arranged a visit but just show up like that? It is very off-putting. Enough to make us not want to go to that church b/c it is very pushy. A pastor came last night at 8:00 at night, unannounced. I met him in our front drive b/c our dogs were trying to jump in his car and lick him to death. He started walking toward the house like he was just going to walk in.:001_huh: I stopped in the yard and when he realized I was not walking toward the door he finally stopped. Said he just wanted to stop and say hi. We were in the middle of fixing a water line I broke earlier in the day and really had no time to chat. We were not rude to him but he got the message we were involved in repairs and left. We have stopped leaving visitor information at the churches we visit because of this. How normal is this? I have never had it happen before. Should I put a no soliciting/no church visit sign up? The beware of dogs and No trespassing signs don't seem to be working.:D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
