The first is a list of reasons Thom Rainer thinks we should reconsider keeping the old fashion church bulletin. It’s all about making guests feel welcome which may bring them back.
- Worship times. Many bulletins are retained for future use. It is thus imperative for the worship times to be prominent in them.
- Physical address of church. You want to encourage the guest to return, so include the physical address of the church for their GPS.
- Website and social media links. This is a primary means of communication for our culture. Your church must be speaking that language, and guests need to know where to find you online.

And finally, Georgia Baptists have been reading The Christian Index for 193 years. The bad news is that the print edition is coming to an end; the last one will be mailed to subscribers at the end of December. The good news is that the online version is free to everyone immediately! Christian Index will now reach a global audience while saving the Cooperative Program thousands of dollars previously required for printing and distribution.
