Earlier this week I shared 13 ways you can publicize events inside your church.

That was only half the list!

I’ve got 13 more publicity ideas for inside your church for you.

13 More Ways You Can Publicize Events Inside Your Church via Women's Ministry Toolbox

That’s right 26 ideas in all!

There’s bound to be a new idea or fresh spin on a way for you to reach your women.

Pick and choose the ones that make the most sense for your team and for that particular event.

Admittedly, using all 26 ideas would be a bit obnoxious!

  1. Printed newsletter
  2. Facebook
  3. Twitter
  4. Church Marquee Sign
  5. Power Point announcement slides before service begins
  6. Word of mouth
  7. Personal invitations
  8. Bulletin inserts (bookmarks, flyers)
  9. Postcards mailed to past attendees (great for repeat events)
  10. Candy mini-flyers (with a cute saying – Be a “smartie” and attend our Women’s Ministry Fellowship on December 14th at 6:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall)
  11. Banners
  12. Registration table
  13. Church Website

Your turn to share: Did I miss any? What other publicity tools do you use to publicize events to church members?

Tip 11 – Attention Grabbing Publicity

Welcome to 31 days of Women’s Ministry Tips!

Tip 11 is an out-of-the-ordinary publicity idea.

tip 11 attention grabbing

Do you ever feel like the publicity for your Women’s Ministry events is falling on deaf ears?

You’ve submitted info for the church newsletter, the Sunday bulletin, and even hung flyers in the bathrooms but no one seems to hear you…

I’ve got a unique, fresh idea to share with you that I doubt you’ve tried. It will definitely grab their attention!

To set the stage for you, the registration for our annual fall retreat to the beach was just about to end and we were making a big last ditch effort to get our ladies signed up.

One of my beloved team members was willing to join me in wearing sandwich boards one Sunday morning at church.

end is near

Are you dying laughing?! It’s okay. I did too when I saw the pictures again. The sunglasses and hat were because it was a beach retreat, but they were also great to hide behind.

Needless to say we got a lot of attention with our “The End is Near” signs. Walking the halls and the sanctuary aisles before the start of the service we made a definite impact.

Please, please make sure you get permission from your pastor. Thankfully ours was willing to let us try something different and new.

Let us know if you give it a try and how it goes!

Your turn to share: What’s something out-of-the-ordinary your team has done to publicize an event?

Tip 1 – Hanging Publicity


Day 1 of 31 Women's Ministry Tips - Hanging Publicity

Welcome to 31 Days of Women’s Ministry Tips!

Tip #1 provides a tip for hanging publicity and signs for your Women’s Ministry events.

It’s also a tip I picked up recently.

I was helping to take down the discussion group signs after our Summer Bible Study Class  and uncovered a nifty little trick!

I was surprised to find they had been hung up with painters tape!

Well, of course!

That remedies the problem of marks on the walls.

And removes the chance of leaving pieces of scotch tape behind.

Roll it up and place it behind the paper or poster and no one will be the wiser!

I will tell you we tried it at the Reveal Your Dignity event and found that large amounts of tape were necessary when we hung the poster board on the walls. So it’s best used on smaller items.

Hope this speeds the clean-up at your next event!
