Day 17 of 21 Days of Hope

Goal: Hope Through You

Theme: Social

Difficulty: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️ (7/10)


Hey friends,


Have you taken a moment yet this year to reflect on the importance of Easter and the impact the message of Easter has on your life? It's too amazing to keep to yourself, right? 


Today's challenge is all about inviting others to experience the hope of Easter in their life. So let's go ahead and share!


Step 1 - Post a worship invite to your friends on social media. When you create your post answer these two questions: Why are you so excited to celebrate Jesus? How could someone join you in celebrating with your church?

[NAME ELEMENT THAT WOULD RELATE TO THEM LIKE GREAT KIDS AREA, GREAT MUSIC, RELATABLE PASTOR, ETC.]


[IF RESPONSE IS "YES" OR THEY AREN'T INTERESTED]

"No worries at all. I just wanted to throw out the opportunity. If you ever are looking for a church to visit, you're always welcome to come with me. We'd love to have you."


Keep it upbeat and relational. Don't be afraid of a "no." Again, this might plant a seed that will grow later. You got this!
