Using Church Connection Cards Effectively: A Super Simple 4-Step Plan for Following Up on First-Time Guests
How do we get first-time guests to come back again? There are a lot of creative solutions to this problem (some of which we’ll mention in this post). But they all boil down to one big answer: you need to make a connection with that first-time guest. Sometimes, this connection happens before the service with your welcome team or members of your church family. Sometimes, this connection happens during the service through the worship or preaching. But most often, this happens through intentional and personal follow-up after the service is over.
Every week, first-time visitors walk into churches in your city feeling awkward and out-of-place. They don’t know when to stand or sit. They don’t know the songs your singing. They don’t understand the different parts of your worship service. In general, they just feel out of place. Of course, that’s not what you want for them. You want them to feel welcome. You’re thrilled that they’ve decided to visit. In fact, you’d love the chance to follow up with them and get to know them better. But to do that, you’re going to need their contact information. But that’s the problem. Getting first-time visitors to fill out your visitor card is not as easy as it sounds.
