Ideas & Templates needed for: Bishop Letter to Less Actives, + Activity Calendar

Ideas & Templated needed for:

Bishop/Branch Presidency Letter to Less Actives, plus Activity Calendar


**********
I was asked to author templates for our Branch President to begin mailing monthly letters to our less active members, along with an Activity Calendar showing items the less actives may be interested in.

So far, the mailing may include:

  • A spiritual message from our local or stake leaders;
  • An Activity Calendar or insert (not a typical Sunday "Program");
  • An invitation for the less active to attend our forthcoming activity.
The overall effect should be that:

  • We are still in mind for caring for them (some have refused to be visited)
  • Something of a forthcoming activity (or meal) is of interest to them and the mailed item will not be stuffed back into a pile of paperwork
  • A nice door-opener, non-invasive, non-judgmental, and the beginning of something they can look forward to next month.


***********
Also,

We are looking for activity ideas for the less actives after the Christmas Holidays. Our branch is located on the western slopes of the Montana Rocky Mountains where snow is the common outdoor postcard look for several months ahead until Spring.

We have been without an Activity Chairperson for sometime (as our numbers are low).

All my best,

Michael

You may also want to include links to some of the "Mormon Messages" and other resources that are online that they may want view or that you may want them to view. Just a thought...

You mean to add links to the mailed letter items? If so, that is good. (Our letter is not email)
