National Day of Thanksgiving – Saturday 30th May 2015

ENCOURAGE YOUR WHOLE CONGREGATION TO GET INVOLVED

Most Churches are always looking for ways to get their congregations more focused on outreaching and connecting with the community they serve.  There is no better, or less threatening vehicle, than the National Day of Thanksgiving to give people a natural way to be a blessing to others in their community.  Why not purchase products in bulk and break them down into small “kits” for purchase by members of the congregation for use as NDOT approaches.
 
A pack of 5 cards, 10 ribbons and 30 mini cards could be sold to members of the congregation for around $10.00.  That would allow each member of the congregation to bless up to 45 people in their community by acknowledging them and expressing appreciation and thanks for who they are and what they do for others.  Multiply that by the number of people in your congregation and see what an impact your Church could have on bringing smiles to faces and impacting the culture of your community.  And what a conversation starter to open up opportunities to talk about the love of Jesus to non-Christians.   Saying thank you opens doors that nothing else can.

NEW WEBSITE LAUNCHED FOR NDOT 2015 – HAVE A LOOK

After many months of preparation our new National Day of Thanksgiving website has been launched. You can find it at www.thanksgiving.org.au , so take a look around the site, listen to the audio downloads, and be informed. You will find them under “Resources” and “News Desk”.  There are a number of video clips of events that have taken place in previous years that will inspire you as to what can be achieved when Churches and individuals work together to release an attitude of thankfulness in their community. Some of the clips could be used in Church services to inform congregations of how they can engage with the National Day of Thanksgiving. Also on the website you can find out how to order your cards, ribbons, mini cards, balloons and stick on badges as well as see images of them before you buy. For those holding functions there are even place cards.
