This is a great time to make changes to your church’s Assimilation System, just in time to follow up on all of your Easter guests.
Here’s today’s question:
Q: Why do you receive the offering at the end of the service?
A: I think I touched on this one in the webinar, but we get this question a lot. The primary motivator for receiving the offering at the end of the service (after the message) has more to do with Assimilation than it does with Stewardship.
The percentage of people who complete and turn in Connection Cards is dramatically increased when they’re collected at the same time as the offering.
Keep in mind that in addition to the vital contact information on the front, each week’s Connection Card contains “Next Steps” that connect with the day’s message and a place to share prayer requests.
These Next Steps and Prayer Requests don’t get filled out until during the message, so we don’t want to collect them until the end of the service.
I hope that helps!
Easter is only 11 days away – is your church ready to welcome the first time guests that are coming your way?
