Your 2012 Easter Checklist

Bob FranquizChurch

Easter is 17 days away.

Now is the time to make the final preparations so you’re ready for the biggest Sunday of the year.

So here’s 10 areas you need to have ready if you want to reach a lot of people this Easter:

1. Direct Mail

What’s you direct mail plan? (Please tell me it’s not just blasting a few zip codes. Be more strategic and you’ll see much better results)

2. Mobilizing your congregation

Have you equipped your church with the tools they need to invite friends? Encourage them that this is the easiest Sunday of the year to invite friends and family.

3. New Believers

Are you prepared for God to bless your church with new believers? That means having a follow up process and materials for those who make the most important decision they’ll ever make!

4. Servants

Have you challenged those who don’t serve to get involved in some way for Easter? It’s a great first step for some.

5. Newcomers

Do you have a follow up system that helps first time guests make your church their home? This is one of the main reasons churches go back to their pre-Easter attendance after Easter.

6. Google

Have you invested in some adwords that will direct people to your website? There will be people in your community looking for a place to attend. Make it easy for them to find your church.

7. Website

Have you make some website improvements to better serve those who are new to your site during the Easter season? Put your Easter services front and center on your home page.

8. Prayer

Is your congregation praying specifically for their friends, family, community and Pastor leading up to Easter?

9. Messages

Have you nailed down your Easter series and your specific Easter message? Don’t wait until Good Friday to start preparing the most important sermon you’ll give all year!

10. You

Are you ready? Have you been seeking God? Do you have a word from Him that you need to share?

Go through this list and see the areas you need to work on and give those extra effort this week. Time is of the essence!
