"The cards were beautiful and a great quality! They arrived quickly after being ordered, so I could get them out to friends and family before our early December vacation. Ives never had so many excited texts and calls about cards like I have this year 🤗"
"I have been ordering cards like this each year for christmas. I order them shortly after Thanksgiving so they always come sooner then the estimates delivery date. I love them and i always get complaments on them."
"This was so easy I took care of it on my phone! Couldn't believe how quickly the cards arrived! Best thing about them was the packaging. They came in nice sturdy cardboard envelopes where I could keep them safe during the addressing process. Also the cards came with their own envelopes so I could include a Christmas letter with photo cards if I wanted to. There were so many message choices for the cards and I could find exactly what we wanted to express. One thing about any Shutterfly purchase is that like any purchase that has options, they pitch the lowest price and extras cost more. But if you know that going in, then you are able to make better choices and not be disappointed."
"My Christmas cards came in on time and the packaging was very well wrapped and the envelopes were not bent."
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.
