FREE Ways You can Encourage People to Invite Friends to Christmas Events

December is a great opportunity in the life of the Church to invite people who don’t go to Church to Church for maybe the first time. Beyond Christmas Eve and Christmas day services, a way Churches usually do this is through hosting Christmas events. Whether it is a concert, a play or even family pictures there are a variety of ways people can invite others into the Church over the month of December.

The question for this podcast centers around how you can encourage others in the Church to be inviting their friends and associates to Church then. That is why Adam McLaughlin is back on the podcast. He is a Church Communicator and blogs/podcasts regularly at

In today’s episode, Adam and I discuss a blog post he wrote recently about Free ways to get people to come a a Christmas Concert and we broaden the topic to include all Christmas Events because it definitely applies.

  • How much Adam is enjoying the warmth of Florida compared to my temperatures in DC
  • What he loves most about Christmas time
  • How Facebook Events play a role
  • How you can create images (Adam has a great FREE resource especially for non-Computer Graphics people like me)

If you want to connect with Adam you can read his blog here and listen to his podcast here. You can also find him on Twitter. He is very active on social media so definitely hit him up if you have a question.
