In our last blog, we learned that the most attended day of the year for the church is Easter Sunday when we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Not only is this a “must attend” service for the faithful, it also attracts those who rarely, if ever, attend church any other time of the year. This group that will come through your doors include the “unchurched” and also a group known as the “Chreasters”.
If you are wondering about the meaning of this title, you are in good company.
This term originated by combining two words into one. If you look at it again, you can probably guess those two words without much effort: Christmas and Easter. In other words, there will be faces in your congregation that you see rarely, maybe even faces that seem familiar but who you can’t quite place. That’s probably because you only see them only twice a year, at Christmastime and Easter. If so, they’re your Chreasters.
The challenge is getting this group to engage their measure of faith in a way that moves them from being twice-a-year attenders to faithful, faith-filled members of the church family. Obviously, the reasons they are seldom in church are as varied as each individual; however, there is one commonality. This upcoming Easter Sunday, they will be present. And unless they connect, they won’t be back until Christmas.
This is one reason why Pure Flix has created resources and crafted a plan for you to extend your Easter Outreach and Discipleship through our latest theatrical release, God’s Not Dead 2. Opening the week after Easter Sunday, we offer you the opportunity to show it exclusively to the members and guests of your church. From our Buy 1, Bring 1 ticket purchasing strategy to the new study, “EVIDENCE: Jesus is Surely Alive”, we believe you will be able to build a bridge from your guests to your church family while focusing on the transformative message and truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
