Try This: Neighborhood Welcome Gift Bags

Make those new to your community feel welcome and loved with fun goodie bags.

What better way to welcome new members into the community than with a thoughtful gesture? Have volunteers assemble goodie bags containing info about your church services, brochures about sights around the city, home-baked goods, and “coupons” for free yard work or moving help courtesy of your church members. Stick the goodie bags in the new family’s mailbox or hand-deliver, along with a treat or meal.

Every year over 45 million people move to a new home and begin looking for a way to connect in their new neighborhood and make new friends. With the New Mover Program from Outreach Inc.,
Outreach magazine’s parent company, your church can easily send an invitation to these families to join the caring and supportive community at your church. Click here to learn more »
