A Way to Get New Families to Return

We recently implemented a guest reception strategy for our Children's Ministry.  As guest families check-in, we invite them to stop by a reception after the service.

We have a room set up with popcorn, snacks, etc.  Some of our staff and volunteers are there to greet them, answer questions, and spend time with them.

New families love it and it provides a great opportunity to build a relationship with them.  This initial touch gets many families to return and become a part of our church family.  Try it.  It works.

Here are some pictures of the reception room we have set up for them.
