For your Outreach or Bridge event to be truly successful, you need to connect with the people who come to it on an ongoing basis. These Connection Cards are one of the most effective ways to do that. Click here or on the image to download a PDF Preview of the Connection Cards that are in this file.
Below is the link to a ZIP file that has for the cards:
A PDF that is ready to print
If you like the images and wording, the all you have to do is open the PDF and print it out. Each of the images is one-quarter of an 8 1/2 by 11 inch page.
An editable MS Publisher File
Just open the Publisher file and you can edit the Connection Card in any way you like—change the wording, image, or the color. If you are going to be doing a two-color printing of a Connection Card using a digital duplicator, I've found the easiest way to do it is to do a "Save As" of one color, e.g. for the Christmas one, Save a GREEN MASTER. Then do a "Save As" of black, e.g. a BLACK MASTER and then print each pass using each of these. This is makes it really simple. Be sure to save the combined file first if you ever want to print it on a copier or as one color.
This is included for you to use if you want on your PowerPoint presentations, in your bulletin or however else you want to use them. You may want to tell your entire congregation via PowerPoint or in your church newsletter or website that you have these cards and want people to encourage others to fill them out. You may want to use the images to do training of your volunteers for the event itself--whatever you need it for these images are there for you!

How to open a ZIP file
Click on the link below and a box will come up asking if you want to "Open" or "Save" the file. You want to SAVE it. I recommend that you save it to your desktop so it is easier to find. The download will take a couple of minutes or more depending upon your Internet speed. Once the download is complete, double-click on the file. If a dialog box comes up, follow what it says, if not just double-click on the files and that will open the file that has all three forms of each Connection Card ready for you to use.
