The sample Welcome Letters (4) are a great way for your Pastor(s), etc. to follow up with the new church visitors. One of these letters includes:
Dear [Church Visitor’s Name],
Greetings! I’m glad you joined us this past Sunday. We believe we are in great days to be serving Jesus, with even greater ahead! I’m glad you could attend. I hope that you found our time together inspiring, meaningful, challenging and perhaps even a little fun. We certainly enjoyed having you with us.
Wow! Here we are already well into the 21st Century. The older I get, the faster it seems to fly! Perhaps that’s why the Bible tells us to “Make the most of every opportunity.” Those opportunities come and go so quickly and more often than not never return. That’s one of the reasons why I’m so glad you have been with us. Sunday is such a great opportunity for worship, and I hope that it will lead to many more opportunities to get to know and enjoy each other. Thanks for coming!
Jesus said, “Whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst.” (John 4:14) We do trust and hope that you’ll find watering holes to fill your thirst again and again.
You’re invited to drop by our offices for a visit. Drop by. It would be great to chat with you.
Well, I must close for now. If there is anything we can do to be of service, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line. I hope you will join us again.
A Recipient of God’s Grace,
PS: I’ve included a [NAME OF CHURCH VISITOR CARD], if you would be so kind as to give us some feedback that would be great. We’re always looking for better and more effective ways to meet people’s needs. Thanks!Click on the link to download the Church Visitor Report below:
