“The Connection Card is a card that enables you to connect with every person who attends your church on a given Sunday.
Measuring about a third of a page, the Connection Card is printed on card stock and inserted into the program. Don’t stick it in the back of the chairs or pews. Put it in the program, and put the program in the hand of each guest who comes through the door. This is the best way to ensure that no one is overlooked.
Here’s a tip: also pass out pens with your programs. Remove all stumbling blocks.
Once everyone who has entered your church has a Connection Card-bearing program in his or her hand, the process of information gathering can begin.”
– Nelson Searcy and Jennifer Dykes Henson
