Podcast Episode #209

Discuss a recent post on the four highest worship attendance days of the year. We also discuss the best ways to use these to your advantage as a church with intentional follow-up and strategic planning.

Some highlights from today’s episode include:

  • A Christmas Eve service is the number one time to reach those who are unchurched.
  • Those who are unchurched and lost don’t really consider Easter as a day for church.
  • Easter is a great time to promote groups because those who usually attend are nominal attenders.
  • You will have more non-churched guests for a Christmas Ever service than any other time of the year.
  • You have got to be strategic and intentional when following up with guests.
  • Churches should be strategic about high attendance days and not let these come and go without a plan.

The four high attendance days we cover are:

  • Easter
  • Christmas Eve
  • Mother’s Day
  • Contextual Day
