Church Letter Writing Success Mini Course – Tip 4 of 13
It is recommended you use all 13 Tips in your Ezine

Our fourth lesson in “13 Tips For Church Letter Writing
Success” will build off the letter “R” in our Church Letters
acrostic.

So far, we have looked at the following:
C – Be Clear
H – Be Hopeful
U – Be Understanding

Today, we will take a look at:

R – Be Responsive
If you close your letter encouraging the person to get in
touch with you if they are in need of anything, be sure to
provide them with a way to get in touch *and* then be
available. 

While this may be difficult for leaders of larger
congregations, you will find that most people will be
sensitive to your unique situation. 

You may also provide other avenues of ministry that will
help them.  After all, even WE don’t have all the answers,
but God has placed many gifts in the church that are available
to be used. 

Provide phone numbers, (yes, even cell phone numbers), and
e-mail addresses so that people can get in touch with you or
someone designated for that particular ministry.

While Jesus was teaching the masses, we see time after time
that He stopped to minister to individuals, and even a few
times when his disciples attempted to turn away the very
people the Lord was reaching! 

He responded to the touch of the infirmed woman who touched
the hem of His garment. He spoke at length with the woman at
the well who in turn reached her community.  He stopped and
called Zachaeus down from the tree and went to his home. 
Nicodemus came to Him at night, and Jesus responded to his
need. 

The list could go on and on…

The key is being responsive, and yes, approachable! 

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

enriching and that you were warmly received.

As a church, we are committed to the person of Jesus Christ,

It is our desire that people come to place their trust in

relationship with Him.

We seek to provide regular teaching and preaching of the
Bible, meaningful times of worship, opportunities for
fellowship, prayer, outreach, and numerous other ministries
for people of all ages.
