August 26, 2009

Here is a good article about touching the lives of those who are beginning to make their new home in Canada. You’ll find some good examples of simple ways to reach out with Christ’s love. http://www.christianity.ca/NetCommunity/Page.aspx?pid=6832

Gear-up for September

August 14, 2009

A lot of people move over the summer and are seeking new connections in their new neighbourhood, including a church. Many search for churches on the Internet using Google. That makes your website the first contact many people have with your congregation. Is it up-to-date? It should include all the contact information, service times and a map. Simply type your address into Google Maps and it will generate a link you can put on your website.

And if people visit, likely the only piece of information they will take with them is a copy of your church bulletin. Make sure it speaks well of your church and includes all your contact information including the updated website address!
