Summertime is a great time to get outdoors and enjoy the weather, but it can also be a difficult time for churches. Many people are on vacation and not as likely to attend church services. In this blog post, we will discuss some ways that you can encourage more visitors to attend church during the summer months.
One way to encourage church attendance during the summer is by having special events. This could include a picnic, an outdoor service, or a family worship night in the park. If you have an event that is geared towards families, this can be a great way to get more people to attend church.
You can also use the summer months as an opportunity to reach out to your community. There are likely many people who are looking for a church home, and if you reach out to them, they may be more likely to visit your church.
Another way to encourage church attendance is by making sure that your church is visible in the community. This could include flyers or poster distribution, handing out information at local events, or even just having a sign in front of your church that is visible to people passing by. If people know that your church exists, they are more likely to visit.
Finally, it is important to remember that church is not just for Sundays. Many people have busy weekend schedules and cannot make it to church on Sundays. However, there are other ways to be involved in church. You can have mid-week Bible studies or other small groups that meet during the week. This allows people to still be involved in church even if they cannot make it on Sundays.
If you follow these tips, you should be able to encourage more visitors to attend church during the summer months. Do not let the summer slump get you down; remember that church is for everyone!

Ministry is hard work and I would like to give you free access to our Insane Follow-Up Webinar. In this free presentation, I show you exactly how we follow up with every person that visits our church to ensure they are invited back. This is the most effective strategy we have ever developed to make sure no one falls through the cracks or feels like no one even cared if they were there.
