The Great Commission commands Christians to go into the world to proclaim the gospel. Often, this means befriending un-churched coworkers, talking and praying with family members, knocking on doors, giving tracts to those we meet, or explaining the good news to a passerby on the street. Twice each year, this pattern shifts. Instead of Christians inviting people to church, people come looking for a church to attend. When does this happen? You probably guessed it: Easter and Christmas.
Christians (and churches) would be wise to focus some extra effort on these two times each year. When people come looking for a church, will your church be ready? The first exposure many people have to your church is your church website. You can see from the graph below that in 2014, searches for the word church increased about 40% during the weeks before Easter and Christmas. They evidently are searching online for a church to attend for Easter and Christmas.
This means a lot of people will be visiting your church website during these times. Will your website convert these online visitors to in-person church visitors? Keep reading to find out how to make the most of these searches so your church website will attract more people to your church.
