How to use welcome folders for churches
Welcome guests and visitors.
Some churches wait to hand out folders until someone has visited their church a few times. Others hand them out freely to any new face who walks through the door. Have your welcome ministry decide who receives these folders, and how they are to be handed out.
Church planting and outreach packets.
Need bulk folders for your church plant? Buying church welcome folders in bulk is an excellent cost-saving measure for anyone who is building a congregation from the ground up and needs to fill their church visitor welcome kit.
New church member orientation packets.
Hand out 6" x 9" welcome folders during your church membership class. Just like visitor folders, include church information, but also include your doctrine and member expectations, as well as any required reading, like membership books or pamphlets.
Church presentation folders.
Church folders can be much more than just a guest welcome folder. Order custom letter-sized folders or 6" x 9" folders, and use for Sunday School, ministry meetings, community outreach communications, annual member meetings, confirmation or CCD, and more.
Reach out to holiday patrons.
Send a special message to guests who attend Christmas and Easter services, as well as Baptism, Communion, and Confirmation services. Let them know they are welcome all year long to worship at your church.
A simple welcome folder for church visitors is a great handout to have in your welcome ministry's toolkit. Shown: Family Welcome Mini Folder
