As part of our outreach effort, I'm starting to send out letters to people in our community. I have been going through the phonebook and addressing personal, hand written letters to each household.
In these letters I introduce myself as a local pastor and say that I would like to offer them any pastoral services I can, such as prayer and/or pastoral counsel.
I got the idea from our prayer stand. We've had such success with it that I thought I would try offering it on a broader scale.
I tell them that I will keep everything in the strictest confidence and that they can contact me whenever they would like.
Along with it I include a gospel tract and our church's contact information.
If anything, this might be a cheap form of advertising. I pray though, that it might truly be effective for showing our concern for the souls of Ashland.
