How notices should work in church

I just got word that a new guest post I submitted to MorethanDodgeBall will be posted later this week.

The post is about connecting with those in church who are hard to reach.

That topic, combined with the start of another school term, got me thinking about the way we do notices in church.

There is one way notices are sure to be effective.

Someone else's stories.

Firstly, have someone else simply say what got them involved in the first place.
Then, let them say why they still do the activity you are wanting to promote.
Next, have them share what they get out of it.
Finally, let THEM make the invitation for others to be involved with them.
