Spring is officially here which means that Mother’s Day is just around the corner! For churches, it’s time for you to gear up and plan a church Mother’s Day service that will be so much more than a simple acknowledgment of mothers. Moms of all types work selflessly day in and day out to care for their families and those around them, and this is a chance as a church to give back just a little bit.
Have you ever reached the end of the Easter season at your church and realized that even though you celebrated the resurrection and empty tomb of Jesus, you never took time to examine Jesus on the cross, and the events leading up to it? In a sense, you just skipped right over Good Friday. It’s easy to get caught up in the joy and the celebration of the Gospel (and we should!), and not realize that the resurrection only happened because of Jesus on the cross.
Get the checklist you need to build an easy and beautiful website for your church.
A church's website is more than a simple place to hold information. It can be the single place people visit to decide whether or not to walk through your front doors. Seem too far out there? Research shows 37% of Americans will search for church information online before deciding to attend a service. If you just include young adults, that number increases to 59%. This statistic alone should encourage you to have a top-notch website that is savvy enough to catch the eye of any onlooker and spark an interest to join your church.
Easter morning nearly always means that you can expect a spike in church attendance. With the increase in church attendance, it is important to make sure people understand clearly why you do what you do as a church. You don’t want people to leave your church with an icky feeling because of a lack of communication. In order to communicate well, you need to plan well. One area of planning that many causes many churches stress is the plan centered on the Easter church offering. When money is involved, people get squirmy and feel uneasy.
It’s no secret that Easter is one of the biggest Sundays of the whole year at your church. But, because of the long weekend, it’s often a weekend where families choose to travel or may not be able to make it to your actual church building due to weather, sickness, or other unforeseen reasons. So, instead of accepting that they won’t be able to engage with you on this important Sunday, what if you set up a church live stream so they could tune in wherever they are?
As Easter quickly approaches, our minds are typically filled with ideas of chocolate stuffed bunnies and where to hide the infamous plastic eggs. Whereas none of this is ultimately bad for us, do we really take time to consider the depth the week leading up to Easter holds?
We’ve all done it. We’ve opened Google or Google Maps and searched for a location. Perhaps it was “Restaurants” or “Gas Stations.” We use this tool to find the things that we need.
We all know someone who is a “list person”. You know, the type of person who at any given time has lists in their planner, lists on sticky notes, and lists on their phone full of tasks ranging from big projects to everyday events. The type of person that forgets to brush their teeth if it’s not on a list.

Let me ask you a question… What’s the craziest thing you’ve done to get someone’s attention? Listen, I think we all could tell some funny stories in response to that questions. We’ve probably all done some absurd things. I know I have! Like when I wore an exact replica of the Dumb and Dumber tuxedo to my senior prom...
