Free Outreach Downloads
Listed below are download links to equip your congregation members in doing outreach within their vocations. Also included is a Power Point presentation for a Greeter and Outreach Training Session.
The first item is a business card tailored for your church that you can use in unplanned opportunities to invite someone to “come and see.” Carry a couple in your wallet or purse at all times.
The second item is a half sheet generic invite that you can use for planned opportunities to invite someone to “come and see.” Also included is a half sheet instruction guide for refresher use. Each generic sheet has room for you to enter a personal note such as I will pick you up at such and such a time, or meet you at the entance to the church, etc.
To supplement the generic invite is an example of an example of a seasonal invite to be used for specific periods of the church calendar. Experiment with your own version too.
Click here for the business card. Use double sided card stock and put a map of your church location, or other information you think important.

Generic Church Trifold
Do you have a Trifold to give to visitors to your church? You should strongly consider some type of “take away” that will remind them of their visit and who to contact for more information, etc. One useful tool is a good and colorful Trifold that lists the time of your services and Bible studies as well as something about your church and its practices, including what Lutherans do distinctly.
