Inviting your friends to easter at BCC

Every Sunday we celebrate the fact that Jesus died and rose again to defeat the power of sin and death. But annual celebrations bring special attention to the thing we are celebrating. That is why we take one particular Sunday every year to focus on this event in history. In our community, Easter is an amazing time to invite your friends to church because a lot of them are already thinking about Easter in one way or another... even if it's just because there is a fish fry around every corner. Or, maybe they are missing their favorite fish fry right now. Either way, we want to help you invite your friends to Easter Sunday. That is what this page is all about. It is an Easter invite toolkit. Below there are a variety of resources to help you start a conversation with your friends centered around inviting them to join you on Easter at Bridgetown.

the toolkit


  • Whether you are on the phone or talking to someone while waiting for your coffee, just say something like, 


    "Hey, I don't know what you are doing for Easter, but I am going to be going to my church and would love for you to join me."


    OR


    "I know you are social distancing, but my church is live-streaming their  Easter service and I will be watching/ attending. I would love it if you would check it out."


    OR


    "I am having a watch party of my church's Easter service and I think you would enjoy it. We'll have lunch afterwards. Would you like to bring your family over for some church and some ham?"


    If they have any questions, one of the best places to send them would be the website,  bridgetownchurch.com. Just tell them there is a link right on the front page called "Planning your first visit." Most of the information they need will be on that page. Consider walking through that page with them and pointing out what you enjoy about Bridgetown.

  • Send your friend a text that says something like, 


    "Hey, I don't know what you are doing for Easter, but I am going to be going to my church and would love for you to join me."


    OR


    "I am going to be celebrating this Easter with my church family in person/ online and I would love for you to join me! What do you say?"


    If they have any questions, one of the best places to send them would be the website,  bridgetownchurch.com.

  • We have created some images that you can use to spruce up the social media world and you can use these in multiple ways. Here are some of the ways we thought you could  use them


    1. Send one of your friends a direct message with the picture and say, 


    "Hey, I don't know what you are doing for Easter, but I am going to be going to my church and would love for you to join me."


    2. Post the image on your wall or feed and write something like this in the description or the comments:


    "Bridgetown Church of Christ, my church, is holding their Easter services on Easter Sunday, April 4th at 10:30 am. I am going to be attending in person/ online and I would love for anyone to join me. What I appreciate about Bridgetown is... (fill in your own stuff here). It's a great place with great people that serves a great God. So I am challenging you to put this on your calendar right now."
