Newsletters and Bulletins
In the newsletter and bulletins leading up to the fifth Sunday:
- encourage members to wear red or their chalice gear. (If you don’t have Disciple gear, your congregation can order shirts online and 10% of the price will benefit Disciples Mission Fund. You can also order customized shirts from this vendor and use the code DOC2016 so 10% of your custom order will also benefit Disciples Mission Fund.)
- highlight a feature of the General Assembly (worship, learning, etc.).
- highlight a general ministry that is connected with your congregation.
Take a congregational “selfie” and post on social media with #Abide2019.
Graphics and Logo
- When incorporating the logo in your marketing pieces make certain the translations and scriptural reference are always accompanying the “Abide” text.
