Easter Outreach Toolkit
Easter Outreach Toolkit
Jesus Christ gives the Great Commission to the disciples in Matthew 28:18-20, but Christ was giving that call to every believer not just a select few. With that in mind, Easter is one of the largest services attended in churches all across the nation. It is our desire to fill God's house with people to give them an opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel message.
This toolkit is designed to help everyone get involved by personally inviting someone to our Easter services.

Hey! I've been thinking of you and miss seeing you (at work/church/at the gym). I want to invite you to join me for Hillside Baptist Church's Easter Services.

Text Option 4
Hey___! My family and I were talking the other day about fun things to do with family right now, and I wanted to let you know about the Easter services at Hillside Baptist Church. I think you and your family would love it.
I think it'd be fun if we attended together, would that work for you? Check out information about the services at Hillsidebc.com and let me know.
You can email your friends with the same wording or change it up some if you are sending a mass-email.
Selfie Video Prompt
Here are some instructions you can use for a selfie video invite. Use this to create a selfie and post to invite your friends to Easter. These videos would be a great follow up to posting the images. These prompts are recommended for the week leading up to Easter.
1. "Easter is this week! I can't wait to celebrate the hope of Jesus, especially at a time like this. Join me in person for services.
2. "Hi friends! I am so excited to celebrate the good news that Jesus is alive, especially in the midst of so much uncertainty and pain. I'm attending Easter service this weekend, can you join me? There are 3 to choose from - let's attend in person together!"
We have some Easter invitation cards with candy attached in the Easter baskets in the church office or foyer. Take as many as you would like, then give them out to your friends and family as you invite them to attend an Easter Service with you. Pick these up this week, give them out in the weeks to come all the way up to Easter.
Join us on the next two GO nights as we take door-hanging Easter tracts to our community. Our goal is to pass out about 1,500 tracts to our neighbors in the two weeks leading up to Easter. The GO night outreaches are on March 21, and April 4, both at 6 pm.
