Churches aren’t just places for the faithful to worship – they’re also gathering places where congregants can come together and truly experience what being part of a faith community is all about.
But people are busier than ever these days, and with more things to do and more devices and experiences fighting for each person’s attention every day, it can be hard for churches and other faith-based groups to get their messages out quickly, easily, and with limited investment. This is especially true during what should be their busy time: the holiday season.
That’s where custom church banners come in.
There’s a reason we have a whole section on our website dedicated to church banners: they really work. Whether they’re hung inside your chapel to announce upcoming events or used within the community to invite people to “Come As You Are,” Church banners grab attention, inspire retention, and can help make a difference in any community.
Though churches can find uses for banners throughout the entire year, we’ve found that there are several important holidays that seem to be really popular with our church-based customers.
So here’s our list of the top-3 holidays for church banners and how you can use them to your advantage this coming season:
Though it might not be as instantly recognizable as Christmas, Holy Week marks one of the busiest weeks of the year for churches of all types.
Beginning with Palm Sunday and ending with Good Friday and Holy Saturday, Holy Week is one of the most popular and meaningful periods in the yearly church calendar.
But a question remains: what is the best way to let your flock know all about your upcoming Holy Week agenda?
Simple – a Holy Week Church Banner.
With Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday all included among the celebrations of Holy Week, many churches feature different services, celebrations, workshops, classes, and more during each day of this special week. That’s where banners can really come in handy.
Easily visible by all who enter your church and customizable with tons of different information about classes, traditions, and more, a Holy Week Banner is perfect for displaying what’s going on in your congregation to maximize attendance and impact. Plus, if your church enjoys the same traditions each year, Holy Week banners can easily be reused, making them even more of a bargain.
Whether you order a banner for each individual day of Holy Week or simply announce its coming with one centrally located banner, there is no better way to celebrate this all-important yearly event than with an eye-catching banner.
Easter is not only the holiest of all Christian holidays, but it’s also one of the most popular. Many believers who may not attend Church on a regular basis do so at Easter to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Easter is also one of the most popular holidays for church events, activities, performances, and festivals – bringing in people from not only the congregation itself, but from the community as a whole to celebrate and learn more about what makes it such a special time of year. With so much going on and many new faces in and around your church, Easter is the perfect opportunity to utilize a high-quality church banner.
We have seen countless numbers of our faith-based customers use their Easter church banners to announce days and times of special services; the details of a fundraising drive; drive sign-ups for brunches – and so much more.
So, if you’re trying to get more interest in your special once-a-year Easter egg hunt, or simply want to tell the masses more about what kind of programming you have going on surrounding this special day, an Easter-themed church banner can be a powerful tool for a minimal investment.
It probably wasn’t hard for you to guess that Christmas would be on our list of top holidays for church banners, but that doesn’t make it any less important. It’s truly the reason for the holiday season.
Christmas is the busiest time of the year for stores, for travel, but also for churches, which means you’ll need to get your Christmas-themed services and events out into the public’s schedule as soon as possible. That’s where banners come in.
If you’re announcing an upcoming live nativity scene, toy drive, midnight mass, or any other special event, a beautifully designed high-quality Christmas church banner is the way to go! Ensure that your flock knows exactly when and where to be this holiday season to celebrate the birth of their lord and savior.
We know that many churches and faith organizations hold toy and food drives around the holidays to help the less fortunate. Our banners make an easy and affordable way to identify donation sites for your drive so you’re able to inspire the public to give back and support your efforts.
