In churches across America, pastors are preparing their congregations for a spiritual journey from the five Sundays of Lent and Palm Sunday to the events of Holy Week, culminating in Resurrection Day. In addition to ministering to their own flock, pastors also recognize the importance of planning for their largest attended service of the year, Easter Sunday.
The Easter Reach
“Easter is an opportunity, but it has to be seized.”
~Ed Stetzer, President, Lifeway Research
As church leadership meticulously prepares for Easter service, it is vitally important to think beyond it by asking a simple question: How do we effectively connect and communicate with our Easter visitors so that they will further engage with our church community? Though some may have a church background and therefore a cursory understanding of the gospel message, others will not. These are the unchurched, a segment of our population that is growing steadily. And in a few weeks, some of this group will be entering through the doors of your church, drawn to the message and hope of the Resurrection.
Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life.
And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it.
1 Peter 3:15 (NLT)
Once introduced to the Gospel message and the Person and mission of Jesus Christ, seekers will inevitably have questions. In this age of diverse religious views and interpretations, how can one know that the claims of Jesus and His followers are true? In fact, how does one know for sure that Jesus even existed, and isn’t just a mythological figure?
These are serious questions, and answering them is the purpose of Pure Flix next release, God’s Not Dead 2. Not only do we provide these answers in dramatized form, we have also developed a study for your church that accompanies our release titled, “Evidence: Jesus is Surely Alive”. In theaters following Easter, this film and its accompanying resources provide a powerful strategy to extend your Easter service impact, further connecting your visitors to your church community while equipping your congregation with the evidence to explain the reason for their hope.
