Just like football has its “Super Day” every year, many churches view Easter Sunday as their “Super Day” for reaching out to the community. People who only come a few times a year are getting their “Sunday Best” ready and you want them at your church! For those of us who have been in ministry for any amount of time, we lovingly have words like “Creaster” or “CEO” (Christmas and Easter Only) for the people who only show up twice a year.
Custom Christmas Ornaments are a great Christmas tradition.
Teaching kids hospitality
It seems in our post-Christian culture that the courage (or perhaps even willingness) to share our faith is becoming rare. Why is that? Why is sharing our faith so challenging for most people? I suspect the answer is “sharing your faith”or “evangelizing people” are such a nebulous phrases. What does it mean? When do you do it? What do you say? How do we teach people how to do it? How do we normalize it?
An oft forgotten tool, Door Hangers offer a unique opportunity to engage your current members in local outreach, generate awareness of your church in your local neighborhoods, and create opportunities for face-to-face engagement, prayer, and inviting people to attend your church.

Most Churches tend to see growth and attendance stall in the summer months. Does it have to be that way? A full 60% or more of people in our communities don't attend church at all, so there's no shortage of people to invite. How can we engage these people and invite them to our church this summer?
While many people will be taking vacation this summer there is still ample opportunity to invite people when they are at home. Not all of America will be on vacation at the same time so let’s open our church doors to those people that are still in the neighborhood each weekend. An Acts of Kindness Campaign engages our communities and raises awareness about your church.
Once you have guests visiting your church the goal is to get them to stick around.
Numerical growth is often on the mind of pastors and church leadership.
Living in the Post-Modern era offers a lot of temptation specifically as it relates to the advancement of technology. It seems right away when kids are born they are handed a smartphone or tablet and begin interacting in the digital world.
Our culture continues to change at a rapid rate. The minute we think we have understood a cultural shift and adjusted our approach we recognize it has changed yet again. The effectiveness of your church is influenced greatly by your understanding of the culture which God has placed your church in.
