The Easter countdown is on. If you haven’t began organizing, you are rapidly falling behind.
Tony and I place our heads collectively and believed of 10 issues to take into consideration when it comes to organizing, programming and advertising Easter solutions:
1) Use free of charge tickets to make anticipation.
Establish the expectation that this is going to be a big weekend.
two) Create and speak about a large audacious attendance objective for Easter.
Cast a big vision for what this will achieve in the church and neighborhood.
three) Program added service possibilities that might contain Thursday and Friday evening solutions, a large outside service early Sunday morning, or an outside baptism service.
If the climate is good, people today enjoy sunrise solutions and Easter baptisms.
four) Go large with the encounter but nevertheless give people today a taste of your typical Sunday.
Do not do what you did final year and the year prior to that. Attempt to capture the consideration of the “Easter Attenders” and do not just preach to Christians.
five) Contain the whole group in generating the encounter which includes guest solutions, kid’s programming, students, and so forth.
Parents will bring their children to an great children’s encounter at Easter.
six) Market a new series on Easter Sunday that either begins on Easter or the following week.
Keep in mind that the win is not how a lot of people today show up for Easter—it’s how a lot of people today come back. Shoot for 75% of your Easter crowd.
7) Take into consideration getting all your children sing in the course of solutions 1 weekend major up to Easter.
They’ll bring their parents and grandparents who will hear your Easter teaser.
eight) Commence advertising 4 weeks prior to and steer clear of the standard “Come celebrate Easter with us.”
Just about every other church does this. Be distinctive and produce a reaction rather than just sharing facts.
9) Blow up social media with far more than just Easter facts.
Brainstorm memorable videos, quotes, infographics, life transform stories, and other teasers that people today will want to share.
