"I have always used your service and it always impresses me with the clarity. See you next year!"
"I love ordering the Shutterfly Christmas card- quality is spot on, weight of card and printed colors are always lovely. The preview button does a great job of giving you a sense of how the card will look. I got my order and said, "Yep, this is how I wanted it to look!" Love the card stock and nice envelopes. Quality all around. We live overseas, so we had wanted to use the Shutterfly mailing and addressing option, but that was not working...fortunately family members were willing to do the work for us."
"I love how you can fold up or you can display on a table to desk!"
"I send these out to family at Christmas. They hold so many pictures that i was able to include everyone this time around. I like that folds on both sides in the front. I get a lot people asking where i bought them. Two of my friends have ordered since , one also bought Birthday cards. Now we share ideas on orders we have made. No down side on this idea worked out great."
"These are so cute! I added the pearl finish and it was well worth it! Adds such a nice touch to the finished product! Can't wait to send these out next year!"
For millions of Americans, attending church on a weekly basis is an important touchstone. This activity provides time for spiritual reflection and emotional recharge. A person’s membership in a religious community can provide them with resources that no other collective of people can. This is why it is so important for religious leaders and community members alike to make sure that everyone enjoys a warm welcome within the company of believers.
Reaching out to people who have drifted away can make a positive difference in lives of everyone involved in this important chain of communication. Something as simple as sending religious Christmas cards with a bible verse or personalized church calendars to people can encourage their attendance and welcome them back into this special community.
Fostering a spirit of community can be an elusive proposition for a religious leader. Indeed, this is a goal that individuals can rarely achieve. It takes a communal attitude, a philosophy shared by everyone, to make a lasting and meaningful difference. When everyone wants to welcome newcomers, current members, and members who have drifted away then fellowship is easy to find.
Everyone’s life can become busy and sometimes even the most important personal activities can be derailed by the demands of work, family, health care, or school. There are many occasions throughout the year when reaching out to community members is especially thoughtful. Consider sending cards or notes to absent members on occasions such as:
• Independence Day (Fourth of July)
• Mother’s Day and Father’s Day
• Autumnal harvest
• New Year’s Day
These annual occurrences often draw people to their religious group of choice. Reaching out at these times of year can be very effective, especially if a special program has been planned.
Connecting with community members can be highly effective when customized purple holiday cards or greeting cards are utilized. Consider using these to activate your church’s membership body.
