It truly is a celebration. It is the day we celebrate the Death, Burial, and RESURRECTION of the King. So hear are a couple of tips.

By now you should have a COMMUNICATION strategy in place. Consider the following:

1. Email/Blog blast to your database (text or HTML, podcast or video)- give them the basics, dates, times, locations, etc…
2. Mailer to a select number of zip codes in your area…new home owners, associations, ect…
3. Website updates that already has the number of services you’ll be hosting, times, locations, etc…
4. Print pieces for church members to post in businesses around town, business card sized invites, etc…
5. Newspaper ads are always an option; however, sometimes cost prohibitive, but available.
6. T.V. – public stations sometimes give free advertisement for churches in some areas of the U.S.
7. Radio spots are always a possibility
