Many churches are gearing up for Easter. Check out this promotional video from my home church (James River Assembly)…
What creative ideas are you seeing churches use to promote their Easter services?
Undoubtedly, April 24th 2011 is one of the most important days of this year for your church. However, I would suggest that May 1st is actually the most important date on the calendar. Why? What’s happening on May 1st? Nothing much… as far as I can tell. (Apparently, it is the 8th annual celebration of “Global Love Day.”)
So why would I suggest that May 1st is more important than Easter? Because, that’s the week (and the weeks following) that will measure the effectiveness of your Easter outreach. And it’s the week where a lot of Easter visitors will decide if they should come back to your church and keep checking out what you have to say and who you are. Unfortunately, many churches put a ton of time and energy into the 24th and forget all about the 1st. So what are you doing to make sure all the time and energy that you invest in your Easter Celebration translates into visitors actually coming back to be a part of what God is doing at your church?
