Are You Ready for Easter Outreach?

Make sure everything’s ready to go for Easter Sunday at your church.

Are you ready for what may be your best-attended weekend all year? In the final weeks and days before Easter, do a quick run through of the people and things needed to ensure your guests are comfortable, informed and encouraged to come back.
