I don’t know about you, but for me, the New Year really begins in September. After a summer of fun, my kids are ready to get back into a schedule, and our family focuses back on work and real life. This is one of the reasons why I believe that fall is the best time for outreach. During this time of year, families are anxiously awaiting new relationships and setting fresh goals.
I’m excited about the many new outreach tools offered in our fall catalog, which should be arriving in churches right about now. It’s filled with new sermon-series ideas, including my favorite: “There’s an App For That…” The idea is that God has an application from Scripture for everyday life. The cool new iPhone iconic graphics are available for postcards, banners, bulletins, and more.
Check out the new fall catalog with hundreds of fall outreach ideas. And don’t forget National Back to Church Sunday coming up on September 12. Already, over 2,700 churches have said they’ll kick off their fall programs by inviting the community back to church on this special day. I just texted a friend and asked him to come to church with me on September 12. I hope you will try it, too.
