Being at a small church, when someone isn't there, I notice. In fact, after every service, I "take attendance" on a spreadsheet on my computer. So I not only see when someone isn't there, I can see when the last time they were there. So my question is, at what point do I call them if they miss services? I think calling someone if they miss one service is almost certainly overkill (especially if I know the reason they missed), but what about if they miss two Sundays? Or three? And should it vary depending on the person's history? For example, I know certain people will be at every service, unless they're out of town. Should I call them if they miss one? And I know others who come to several services in a month, but then go missing for a month or two before returning. At what point do I check on them? I know I'm probably overanalyzing this and trying to make a system out of it when I should simply be led by the Spirit while shepherding the flock, but I don't want to nag people, and yet I want them to know they're loved. What do you think?
