Easter is one of the best times of the year to invite friends, neighbors, and acquaintances to your church’s services. Some Anchorage churches know how important this date is and are mailing out invitations. I received one such invitation in the mail this week.
The 5″ x 9″ card invitation I received (below) is most inviting and makes a stunning visual impression with the “I AM” motif which also describes the face of Jesus Christ with tiny “I AM’s”. Faith Christian Community blankets it’s community with invitations at appropriate times of the year: Christmas, Easter, etc. If you’ve received an invitation from your church, please scan and send it to ChurchVisits@gmail.com or mail to Church Visits, PO Box 90174, Anchorage, AK 99509. I’d love to show other examples of Easter invitations as we move into Holy Week.[img_assist|nid=160523|title=Faith Christian Community Easter Invitation – 2012|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=350|height=192]
The addressing side has a great invitational message to visit. This is the right stuff!
“Jesus … the great I AM. Have you ever thought about the implications of His name? It’s not “I Was” or “I will be.” It’s “I AM.” He IS all you need Him to be in the present day. If you’re thinking about trying church out again, join us for the I AM series, where we’ll remind one another that we are not living life alone. We have the “I AM.” Whether we acknowledge Him or not, He is right here among us.”

Most importantly, don’t forget a personal invitation from you will go much further than a mailing. Documented research indicates the majority of non-believers or non-attenders have NEVER been invited to church. Incredible! I know this is true from personal experience of many years.
