Having watched many converts come into church, having stood at some of
their baptisms and welcomed them into the ward, I have to say that this
is true for the social aspects of the ward. However, attendence at Club
Mormon is not what we will be judged on, in my opinion.

Everyone needs a family that loves them. When they join the Church, they lose their family. Even if their family doesn't throw them out, Mormons think so differently, have so different a world view, that their Gentile family no longer has much in common with them. Since a new member loses his family, he needs a new one in the gospel. Some family in the ward needs to "adopt" the new convert. Then, possibly, they will have the strength they need to remain active over the first few, hard years of Church membership.

This has nothing to do with Club Mormon, and everything to do with families.
