You want to make the most of Easter this year, but your to-do list looms large.
And you want to do what’s most important.
What can you do that will make a big impression on your guests and have a spiritual impact on them after they go home?
Give them a copy of The God Questions Gift Edition.
Here’s why I recommend this little book for your guests this Easter:
- It exceeds their expectations. You are giving them a gift instead of asking them for money.
- It answers the four critical questions they have about God, the Bible, and Christianity.
- It leaves them with a great last impression.
- It includes a presentation of the Gospel.
This is how we handle it at New Song:
On normal Sundays, during our offering announcement, we ask everyone – including guests – to fill out their Connection Card. Then we say,
“If this is your first time with us, take your Connection Card to our Information Center to receive a free gift. (Hold up The Gift Edition.) It’s a book called, ‘The God Questions’. It’s a quick read that will answer the top four questions everyone has about God.
It’s our way of saying thank you for coming, and we hope you’ll become part of our family.”
Who wouldn’t love that?
On Easter we go one step further.
At the end of the service (after I have given a salvation invitation), I stand at the edge of the stage and say,
“I know some of you couldn’t pray that prayer because you still have questions about God. I’ve got an Easter gift for you.” (Hold up a stack of copies.)
“It’s called ‘The God Questions’ and will answer the top four questions you have about God. I’ll be standing right here (point to the floor in front of the stage) right after the service and I’ll gladly give you a copy if you’ll read it.”
This gives me a chance to meet and have a brief personal conversation with every inquiring guest.
Who pays for the free books?
Your church makes an investment in your guests. And soon, new members invest in your church.
Just one new check written to your church can cover the cost of the books. One family that comes to Christ and begins to give regularly can more than cover the cost of giving a Gift Edition to every newcomer every weekend.
This gift and personal touch is the most simple and effective means I’ve found to increase the likelihood our Easter guests will return.
Order The God Questions Gift Edition for your guests today.
Then check it off your to-do list, and move on to preparing the other things you want to do to make Easter the best weekend of the year.
