Don’t miss a HUGE opportunity this Christmas! (+ FREE headers by Cathopic)

Your church attendance on Christmas might be the largest of the year. Are you going to miss a huge opportunity this Christmas? We hope not! Every year you have crowds of people show up at your church on Christmas, many of whom you haven’t seen in awhile. Many of whom may never come back. We know, we know, we know. It’s too early to start celebrating Christmasbut it’s not too early to start planning for it! Read on for essential tips + free Advent & Christmas headers from Cathopic.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could see those folks MORE than a few times a year?
A big reason it doesn’t happen more already is that churches aren’t able to reach those people after they leave the building on Christmas (or Easter, etc.) That’s why encouraging your congregation to sign up with your church’s Flocknote network every holiday can be so valuable.

Don’t miss this tremendous opportunity!
This Christmas make a connection with them. When they show up, get their email address and their cell phone number so that you can continue the relationship after they leave. Flocknote is by far the most powerful and effective way to do this!

This is an episode of The Finding Uno Show, a fun & free show hosted by Flocknote Founder & CEO, Matthew Warner. Watch or listen to more episodes at

Tips to keep in mind:

  • Anytime people are in front of you, you need to take advantage of that opportunity to connect with them further, and that includes getting their most-important information, which is their email address and cell phone number.
  • Plan ahead! Don’t wait till December to start thinking about this.
    • At a minimum, you can provide your email/text list info in your bulletin but it’s even better if you hand out a separate flyer to each person.
    • Make an announcement to provide your email/text list info, and explain “why” they should provide you with their contact info. It’s important to make it compelling!
    • Consider offering a small gift for all those that sign up so people are more willing.
  • Consider the parable of the lost sheep in Luke 15 – this Christmas is a HUGE opportunity to reach that one lost sheep.
