How to Write Letter

Church Follow up Letter

Church follow up letter is written to the first time visitor of the church to encourage him/her to attend the church on a regular basis. When a person attends a church for the first time, he/she is a bit nervous thinking about how the current members of the church would react towards him/her. You can clear their doubts by writing a letter and inviting them to join your community.


Church carries lots of activities and services to the community. It is impossible for the first time visitors to see what the church holds for them and their family. Further, it is likely that the visitor might not visit the church again due to some personal reasons or preferences. To make them join your community and show them that your church has everything for them and their families, you have to write a follow up letter. By following up with the letter, you can request the visitors to join you in the prayer and share some encouraging messages with them. You can also share some of the important event your church is going to take in order to serve the society.

The follow up letter you write to the visitors should not include the words that are used in your church, since they may find it difficult to understand it. The letter should plainly express your excitement on their decision for joining your community. You can also add some of the activities that are held in your church. Explain in brief about it how it is beneficial for them and their families. Remember, not for force them to join your church. Follow up with them if you truly believe that they will come back. Here is a church follow up letter sample written to the first time visitor. The letter should be written on your church's letterhead.

I hope now you must have realized the importance of a follow up letter. It cannot only be used for interview or business purpose, but surely for the religious purpose also.
