In brief: Stop by.
Many people with depression don't have the energy to deal with going out, or with a lot of people at one time.
So one or 2 could bring over a pizza for lunch!

In brief: Don't give up
Try again if you care for your friend.
Besides sadness, usual expressions of depression are not feeling like doing things one previously enjoyed; and social isolation. Don't be put off by his resistance. It is only caused by his depression. Insist. You may be his only chance of getting better.
