Our first lesson in “13 Tips For Church Letter Writing Success”

We will build off the letter “C” in our Church Letters acrostic.

Each week, we will provide the previous letter for easy
reference without going back through your e-mails.

C – Be Clear
  When your letter is read, you don’t want it to be similar
to some bad commercials on television that may have looked and
sounded good, but upon completion of viewing (or reading), the
person looks back and wonders “what that was all about”. 

  If you are writing a letter to thank a person for visiting
your church, be sure to do exactly that… then go on to tell
them about the ministries that are available to them.

  As you know, we live in a fast paced world, and when people
want information, they want it to be clear, concise, yet when
it comes to the church environment, they also want it to be
on time!  There is nothing quite so disappointing as receiving
a letter of an “upcoming” event only to find that it is over
because the mail didn’t go out in time, or the 3rd class bulk
mail took much longer than expected. 
(Should have used Pony Express!)

  Be sure to answer the five basics of “Who, What, When,
Where, Why”, and within those basics be sure the person
knows what to do upon completing the reading of the letter
or greeting card.

  Below is your first complimentary church letter which you may
modify and use in your own church communications. 

(Friends and Family Day Invitation Letter)

I write briefly to inform you of a very special day of
ministry and outreach we will be having here at First
Christian Church on Sunday October 15, 200_ in the morning
service(s).

We will be hosting a “Friends And Family” day, and we are
encouraging all members and adherents to think of at least
1 or more friends or family members to invite to attend
church with you. The best invitation of course, would be to
a person or family who does not attend church anywhere at all,
however for this special day I am sure the invitations will
not be exclusive in this manner.

Statistics have shown that the most effective manner in
building Church attendance is by the invitation of a friend
or family member.  The goal is not just to build Church
attendance, but to quite possibly change lives for eternity!

I encourage you to take a moment right now and begin to make
a list of 5-10 people you would consider inviting to First
Christian Church on “Friends and Family” day.  Then, take
the list and offer prayer for each name and ask the Holy
Spirit to lead you to the right time and place in which
you will offer your invitation, and then…go for it!

We will be having special ministry for the children on that
day as well as a relevant presentation of the Gospel message
through Word and Song.

Following the service, we would like to host a Fellowship
Meal for everyone in attendance, so it is important that we
know how many people will be coming on this special day. 
A signup sheet has been placed in the church foyer with
details on this meal.

I look forward to seeing you here on October 15, and I
encourage you to do your best to invite a friend or family
member.

Blessings in Christ,
Pastor John Doe
