COVID Church Attendance Growth Idea
The COVID Church: Before & After Church Attendance Growth Idea is for pastors and ministry leaders who have been watching their at-home congregation slip away.
Do you feel sad, but also stretched and unsure how to adequately meet the needs of vulnerable saints? Have you been praying for a simple, doable way to re-engage and express love to your stuck-at-home members?
Don’t make this task harder than it needs to be. The key is to do something, specific and proactive, right now—and that’s exactly what you find in COVID Church.
“Absolutely excellent idea about the Google Meetups, and great instructions.” Nancy Poland
“An answer to a deeply felt need of church congregations. Well-written, clear, and resourced, it should be all one would need to become more inclusive with the on-line church.” Jodie Randisi
“Everything God leads you to share, time after time, is eye opening, and always leads me closer to God, building my faith in ways I cannot explain. Words of encouragement and advice. Thank you.” Pastor Samuel Wafula
Marnie Swedberg spends much of her time working with Women’s Ministry Leaders and Women’s Event Planners around the world. After thriving for a while, they found their online Bible studies shrinking rapidly once some of the gals were able to attend in person.
The stuck-at-home gals began missing sessions with comments like, “I just don’t feel like I belong anymore,” or “I’m so lonely. At least you guys get to see each other.”Another sentiment they heard goes like this, “I’m on the outside looking in. I’m not a part of what’s happening,” or “I don’t feel as if I’m needed, or even noticed.”
When COVID-19 first struck, all of us were forced to “shelter in place,” meaning everyone was stuck at home. For the sake of our vulnerable populations, we accepted that restriction.
But now, as some people get to go to the building while the rest stay tucked away at home, there is an undercurrent of unrest bubbling to the surface.
Tap into the concept that is “Bringing ‘em BAC.” Finally, Before and After Church (BAC) chat rooms equip at-home attendees to do more than just observe.
This short instructional handbook includes clear instructions, advice from groups who have successfully adopted this idea, and allows you to avoid some sneaky trip wires you’d otherwise hit.
What you don’t need is a 200-page book, or more expensive equipment. You also don’t need to hire more staff. In fact, Swedberg advises you to avoid the “out of sight, out of mind” blind spot and actually tap into your invisible, stuck-at-home volunteers to run launch initiative.
If you’ve been looking for a simple way to re-energize and engage with your at-home saints―this is it.
