New Business Cards: Connect People to Trinity

We’ve just received a brand new batch of distinctive business cards:

You can pick up some of these cards at the back of the church. Take plenty and use them:

  1. Invite friends to church.
  2. Give them to people when you pray for them or talk about your faith.
  3. Post them in offices and businesses that have contact information bulletin boards.
  4. Leave a small pile in offices and businesses that have other piles of cards.

Please don’t leave them where they are not wanted. But you’ll be surprised how many places you can find to spread the word about what God is doing at Trinity.
