How To Be Creative With Your Preaching This Summer (Part 2)

As part of your creative summer series planning, try tying in fun events to complement your teaching.

For example, during the God On Film series, we have weekly “play groups” available where people can go see one of the featured movies with others from the church, and then grab dinner to discuss it. This goes hand-in-hand with your creative outreach. People will want to go see the summer blockbusters anyway, so why not invite them to go with you?

They’ll meet new people, have fun, engage in relevant conversation, and be more likely to attend church the day you are discussing what they’ve seen. When you can creatively tie your outreach and your messages together, you will see exponential results. 

In addition to your attractional series, keep in mind that the summer is a perfect time to spice things up and draw a crowd by bringing in guest speakers.  Think of the respected pastors that you would like to have preach at your church and then make the invitation. Their schedules will be more flexible in the summer, so they may just agree. Your attenders will be excited about having a fresh, new face come in and you can take your summer vacation without worry!
