Fall. I don't know about you, but here in Las Vegas I'm looking forward to fall. Temperatures begin to cool off (we'll soon have daytime temps under 100!) and the plans we've made for our fall ministry season will be in full swing!
Note: Some of this is still true. Some, due to COVID-19 obviously will look quite different.
If your church is like most churches, the fall ministry season is an important part of your annual strategy. As school begins and summer vacations come to an end there is often an attendance bump. In some communities the end of summer and the beginning of fall is accompanied by the largest number of new attendees as new residents begin to look for a church.
If your church is like my church, your fall ministry season hasn't kicked off yet, but it's just about to begin. Here at Canyon Ridge we're one week in to a six week onramp to our fall groups launch.
We're definitely close enough to the fall to see how it's shaping up and make a few last minute tweaks to our strategy.
