My church has no casual members.
Even the mentally retarded members are committed.
FaceBook ads. Some days I see a few; some days I see many. Lately I’ve been seeing many. Many tell me I can make a ton of money advertising on FaceBook.
This one promised templates for three FB ads I can run for my church, to attract more visitors. Given the current situation of my church, I said, “It can’t hurt,” and clicked.
I had to give them my e-mail, and agree to receive e-mails, in order to download the pdf.
So, three ads. One sort of general purpose; one for when you launch a new sermon series (I may explain below why sermon series aren’t do-able in Lutheran churches.); and one for your church’s annual Big Day. I’m not real impressed. But I’ve got to give it to him: he’s a heck of a salesman.
So now I get an e-mail every day hawking this guy’s apps, videos, courses. None of them are free. The last one invited me to join this online community for pastors. Membership costs $300/year.
I get the feeling something’s really missing here.

Maybe churches shouldn’t have ads. Or maybe the pastor should say before beginning, “and now a word from our sponsor: Allstate. Are you in Good Hands?” That would seem to detract from the service, but think of the dividends!
But I kid.
Apparently this “theme” has no Like button for comments. [Thumbs up.]
