3 Ways to Improve Your Church Bulletins

If your church has been around for a while and you are reading this article, chances are your church bulletin needs a bit of an updating. Bringing new life to your church bulletin can benefit your church in many ways. Follow these tips below to make some quick, but good improvements to your bulletin.1. Keep it Fresh The simplest, yet most important part of bulletins is to keep them fresh. Bulletins should always have exciting new content such as news, events, facts and so on about the church that members would be highly interested in. The more relevant and useful your bulletin the better it will do.A good idea would be to publish a new church bulletin before the beginning of each month so members can prepare for upcoming events. This gives you a bit of extra time to hand out the bulletins and it gives the members time to read up and plan ahead. Always be sure to collect old bulletins before you put out the new ones and make sure everyone knows that each month new content will be in the bulletin.Like a blog, people expect to see something new and useful each time they read it.2. Get Feedback The quickest way to make accurate improvements is to go directly to the members of your church and ask for feedback. An easy way to do this would be to hand out a survey, do an online survey or ask members individually.

You could even have the survey on the most recent bulletin and ask people to hand in the bulletin after they complete it. Do it anonymously so people feel more comfortable with giving honest input.You can then take this feedback and apply it to your future bulletins. Collecting feedback should be an ongoing process because you never know when someone might have a great idea for your church.3. Print Higher Quality If people seem to lack interest in your bulletins and even toss them away, consider upgrading the quality. A higher quality church bulletin will stand out more and will be naturally harder for people to throw away because of the increased perceived value of the item.Printing higher quality church bulletins can be more expensive, but it can work wonders for any church. It will give the bulletins a more professional look and feel and allow you to add more color, images and even special printing effects that will wow your members. The nicer your church bulletins, the more likely people will be to interact with them and participate based on the content inside.If you are ready to improve your church bulletins, start by simply making a list of all the improvements you want to make and tackle them one by one. Then, all you need to do is find a printer!
