For churches, sometimes it can be a struggle to draw in new members to a congregation. Even with the success of mission projects, public events and powerful sermons, many churches see their congregation dwindling or their membership remaining stagnant.
Despite all of the options available, the most tried-and-true way to attract new members into your place of worship is to have a stellar sign that is both appealing and informational. How do you do both, you might ask? A digital LED sign may be your answer.
For any business, signs provide multiple functions. They show professionalism, they attract customers, they provide information and they convey the character of a place or business. All of these aspects are just as important for churches or religious institutions, and each can be achieved simultaneously through implementing a digital LED sign at your place of worship.
And here’s how:
Letting the public know of your institution’s worship times is crucial to getting people to walk in the door. If people don’t know when you operate, you’re going to have a much harder time getting prospective members to visit your church.
Offering a slide showing worship times will let people know what time your congregation gathers, increasing the possibility of gaining new members.
They Provide Important Information
Worship times may be the most important information to convey to the public, but providing additional information about your church or religious building will let the public know what else is going on in your religious community.
Are you having a potluck, Christmas celebration or Vacation Bible School? Maybe you’re a synagogue who wants to let the public know of prayer services during Rosh Hashanah. Don’t forget about special events for Hanukkah! If you’re a mosque, you might want to invite people in during Ramadan services. Whatever the occasion, your digital sign can let people know what’s happening within your building.
They Grab Attention
Churches already do a great job at attracting attention through funny Bible-related puns. We all love to see signs that uses phrases like, “Souler energy used here” or “Choose the bread of life or you are toast.” These help convey the humor and character of staff and congregation. Unfortunately, on older, run-down signs these can often get overlooked by passerby who don’t notice your sign.
Using a digital sign to attract people passing your house of worship is a great way to use color and a bright display to you advantage. Digital signs attract the attention of people passing by, adding to whatever creative message you want your sign to read.
Religious Quotes and Verses
One of the most important ways to spread your religious institution’s message is to share your favorite quotes or messages from your religious texts. But with so much other information to share, you may not have the space or time to replace letters on your sign.
Digital LED signs offer multiple spaces and slides to display information, allowing you to relay all of your most pertinent information to the public, while offering extra spaces to show off your favorite quotes and verses.
The major benefit of digital LED signs is that they offer the spaces necessarily to convey ALL the information you choose. One-dimensional signs often don’t allow churches and other organizations to show everything they want to the public. Worship times, special events, funny phrases and religious verses can all be relayed to the public with the use of a digital LED sign, due to the many display options that these signs offer customers.
