“There’s no place like home for the holidays,” as Perry Como sang. For many people in your pews, “home” may be somewhere else. Whether it’s college students leaving campus or families who moved to your area for a job, some regular churchgoers will likely miss services during the last few weeks of the year.
Your congregation may be spread across the country or even the globe during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. So, how can you stay connected to those who live in your city but are “heading for Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie”?
Many churchgoers travel during Thanksgiving and Christmas, but you can continue to encourage them from afar during the holidays.
