Here is how Sandra Coulson from Ascension Anglican in London, Ontario Canada describes the wonderful sample of a letter to children:
Sunday School letter is a piece I helped the Sunday School teachers create to send to the children of the congregation to remind them of start-up in the fall. It might seem strange to send out snail mail to a generation that is so attached to digital communication, but the advice I received from parents and grandparents (I don’t have children myself) is that printed letters are so unusual as a form of communication for these kids that it really stands out for them. In fact, I’m told that they actually get excited when the postal carrier delivers a letter addressed to them. Who knew?
I just LOVE this! And I can imagine the excitement a child would have who received it.
In fact I liked it so much, I've made a whole set of POSTCARDS designed specifically for Kids that you can send out from your church. CLICK HERE to go to that post.
A full-size PDF of the letter is available for Effective Church Communication Members at the end of this post. [Read more...]
