There is no doubt that church can bring people together, but attendance is in trouble. It is up to you to figure out a way to make things better, at least in your community, and you can do that with a church-sponsored community event that will help your church get itself out there. Recognition is just one of the perks of these types of events, but you will have to make sure things run smoothly. The following suggestions will help you with this event.
You know that church attendance is a good thing for everyone, but you might need to convince others of that, which you can do with this event. Your church leaders may be great speakers, but you should also consider a professional speaker for this event to communicate your message in an entertaining way. This will help you capture the imagination of people who may not know your church or your religion. Professional speakers know how to inject emotion, humor, and curiosity into their speeches in a way that attracts others, which is what you want.
People like to be entertained in different ways. You probably have some talent lined up for the main stage, but you still need other little things that your audience can enjoy, which should make you think of hosting additional partners. You can ask some of your members to donate something to the event, like a cookie or a sweet stand among other things. Of course, you can also ask businesses in your neighborhood if they want to participate in the event by letting them prop up a tent of their own where they can promote their business. Of course, you should let them know what kind of event this is to make sure it’s a good fit.
Okay, you are thinking of all the vital things that will make your event as entertaining as possible, but you also have to think of the little things that ensure your event goes on without a problem like your AV system. Making sure every person who attends your event hears you and your performers clearly depends on sound, which means you really should look for the very best AV rentals you can find. Be sure to take your time when you are looking for your equipment to make sure you have plenty of choices.
After all is done, you are going to need a cleanup crew. Sure, you probably have your church to help you, but this is a bigger job that may require additional support. Keep in mind that your church was probably working all day and may feel tired after all the things that took place at the event. It would be a good idea to hire a team of cleaners to return the lot or room back to the way it was. A professional cleaning crew usually helps dispose of the trash in an eco-friendly way, which is good.
These are just some of the things that should ensure your event is successful. You should consider working with other churches in your neighborhood because this job should not rest on your shoulders alone but on everyone involved with the event planning. Be open to suggestions whenever they are given because you never know what might work.
