Promo for Small Groups

Though this is from January 2011, I’ve found it to be one of the most popular posts in the history of the blog. So, as you are getting ramped up for this Fall’s small group launch I figured I’d give it another go. Hopefully you will actually post some of your ideas this time. If you want to use the images below, no problem. Just give credit where credit is due.

Ok, thought we could have some fun this week on the blog. Our topic: How to promote “getting in a group” at your church. I think this could be a great “idea share” topic. So, the comment section below will be helpful. What have you seen or done that has been effective in generating “interest” and moving people into group life. What campaign “themes”? what communication channels? what event ideas?  I’m not going so much for your on-going strategy (though that is more vital) as I am short-term “push” ideas.

To kick our idea-share off, here is what we are trying this Januray:

  • Theme: short-humorous sayings that communicate group-life values (see graphics below).
  • Communication channels: Video-screen slides / announcements from stage / pastor reference in sermon / placement of graphic in worship guide we hand out at service (not just a “slot” but one of our graphics) / t-shirts for small group volunteers at each campus / twitter & facebook / church blogs.
  • Event: We actually hold a connection event at each campus where we bring many leaders onto campus and invite those not in a group to come meet these leaders & plug in to a group. Thank you Northpoint for the idea. we call it GroupLink.
