Easter is on its way, so now’s the time to prepare for the growth your church will experience.
What strategies have you put into place to lead the people God sends through your doors? How will you help them in their spiritual walk, engage with them, or track the momentum your church has during this season?
3 Apps to Maximize This Easter
As you anticipate all that God stands ready to do in your community and through your church, remember the free apps you have at your fingertips as part of the Life.Church Open Network.
Church Online Platform
As we all know, more people will attend church this Easter than any other time of the year, with the exception of Christmas. Meet them where they are—even online—with the Church Online Platform.
“From seekers and homebound believers to those looking for their first experience with a church, the Church Online Platform allows us to connect with people right where they are.” Greg Surratt, Seacoast Church
Stream your Easter services online, and offer attenders community around content with live chat and live prayer. Your staff and volunteer team will love the Chat Host workspace, too!
YouVersion Bible App
God’s Word is alive and active. As pastors and church leaders, we know this to be true! Help your attenders this Easter fall in love with God’s Word by introducing them to the YouVersion Bible App for adults and the Bible App for Kids for, well, kids.
Downloaded on more than 250,000,000 devices worldwide, the Bible App allows your attenders to engage in scripture anywhere, complete reading plans, earn badges, and share verses with friends and on social media.
Idea: Read a Bible plan together as a church leading up to Easter. Talk about the content from stage, in your ministry team huddles, and on social media.
Did you know that you can have your own content in the Bible App, too? With YouVersion Events, your church can add its own message outlines, announcements, links to online giving, and whatever else you need to communicate to your attenders—100% free.
“We’re excited to implement YouVersion in our ministry, especially the Events feature, where we insert each week’s teaching notes and comments. Our people appreciate having the notes at their fingertips, sharing them, and saving them. We’ve redirected thousands of dollars to other ministry needs by replacing printed programs!” Pastor Bill White, Christ Journey Church
Tracking church data is easy with Church Metrics. Available on desktop and Android and iOS apps, Church Metrics gives your church an easy way to input and display real-time data, like attendance, salvations, giving, and more. Learn how to set up a special event for your Easter services, and use the weather integration feature to note weather history and it’s impact on attendance.
These three apps can help you maximize Easter and draw even more people into a rich, real, life-giving relationship with Christ. In addition to apps, we offer sermons, artwork, worship music, kids curriculum, and other Easter resources for free on our Easter page: open.life.church/easter.
