Last week, I wrote about the 9 reasons why your church should make the most of ‘big days’ for growth. And I told you that ‘big days’ have been very instrumental in Saddleback’s growth over the last 40+ years. We’ve learned the art of pyramiding growth through special days.
But how? How do we maximize those big days for all they’re worth? Here are nine ways.
1. Plan your big days around your main worship service.
You might host other special events, but if you’re hoping to enlarge your main service attendance, then you will get the most benefit out of big days if they are planned around your existing, primary weekend service(s). It’s very difficult to try to get people who attend a special event during the week to become part of your weekend service.
