One of our evangelism strategies as a church is to use “GRACE” cards. “What is a GRACE card”, you ask? I’m glad you asked. Let me explain.
The concept behind a GRACE card is to bless our community. Really the concept is to put words behind random acts of kindness. Our church family is encouraged to take a GRACE card and to bless somebody throughout the week. It can be as simple as buying a book of stamps or leaving quarters in a laundry machine. Some like to purchase meals for the people behind them at a fast-food chain. When you do this you simply leave a GRACE card.
A GRACE card is really simple. All it has is the word “grace” on it and then an encouragement to check out a bit.ly link. You can see a picture of a grace card and the page that the bit.ly link leads to by going here.
If you decide to do something similar to this with your church here are a couple of tips.
- Make sure the people know that it’s not something that you leave with a tip. This is when you go over the top and bless somebody
- It’s not a witness tract or a business card. Don’t just encourage people to check out the website—bless them anonymously.
- Stress that your goal is to do something in such a way that the person is left wondering, “Who in the world just did that for me”.
- Make the cards glossy, simple, and inexpensive (You can get a ton of cheap business cards at various places online)
- Share ideas
