LAUNCH CITYFEST EAST TEXAS IN YOUR CHURCH | AUGUST 25
WATCH this instructional video on how to launch the prayer card in your church!
INTRODUCE CityFest East Texas to your church. There are over 350 area churches partnering with CityFest to pray together, serve our communities through CityServe, and to proclaim the Gospel on October 5 and 6 at The Square, downtown Tyler.
SHOW the CityFest Prayer Card video to your congregation.
Describe in your own words what a festival is to help your congregation catch the vision. Here’s a video if you need help.
DISTRIBUTE Festival Prayer Cards and Festival Invitations to every congregation member. Challenge each person in your congregation to complete the Prayer Card with the first names of friends and family who need to experience Christ’s love and forgiveness. Encourage your members to join the prayer team, volunteer for the festival, or become a Festival Friend by checking the box at the bottom of the Prayer Card. Ask them to turn it in (we have found it best to collect them during the offering). Be sure to return these prayer cards to the CityFest office. Everyone who fills out a card will receive a reminder email to continue praying for their friends and the CityFest East Texas prayer team members will join in praying for those friends.
Motivate your congregation to use the printed invitations to invite their unsaved friends and family to the festival at The Square, downtown Tyler to hear the GOOD NEWS.
DISTRIBUTE CityFest resources and promotional materials to your congregation. It is great to have a table(s) in the lobby of your church where people can pick up these materials on their way out.
