You are IN THE LOOP at Boston Avenue!


This is a newsletter (first edition) published by Audra Fogle, Welcoming Ministries. It is sent to all Sunday school presidents who in-turn share with their classes.

It is very interesting and to the point, one page.



Thank you for being "In The Loop" for Boston Avenue Church! Read on to know more about new members, special guests and upcoming happenings to share with your class!
Welcome to the Loop Group
You are now"In The Loop"with Welcoming Ministries. Thank you for saying YES! to being in partnership with the Welcoming Committee! We are excited to work with our Sunday School Classes to welcome our guests and follow up with our members. Each class has enthusiastically designated a volunteer (or two) to represent their class.

Here’s what you can expect each week:

1- Visitor Cards in your classroom.

2- A weekly email with specific information for you to share with your class as you see fit.

3- Personal follow-up and partnership with any guests who may visit- this is a team effort!

4- A partnership approach to growing an invitational and welcoming culture not only with new people but our existing congregation too!

Next Discover Boston Avenue Lunch Coming Soon!

On September 13th from 12:00-1:30 in the Asbury Classroom, Welcoming Ministries will be hosting our next lunch for guests and new members. Dana Solomon is our well-organized coordinator so volunteering is easy! If you would like to volunteer to set up, greet, host a table or serve on the clean up or follow up crew, you can email Dana at djsolomon59 . If you would like to recommend a guest for a personal invitation to attend the lunch, contact audrafogle. This fun event has been well-received by both volunteers and guests alike! It’s fun sharing what you love about Boston Avenue and getting to know our new people!

Every Member, Every Sunday! There may be a test.

As I follow up with guests each week, I notice where they sit. In some cases, I have picked up the phone and called the members seated next to our guests to see if they met them or remembered anything about them. So….let your people know to GET THEIR GAME ON…you never know when you may get a call! On that same note, if you meet a guest on Sunday and think your information could be useful in helping us help them find their way at Boston Avenue. Please share.

Sunday School Visitor Cards- Thank you for using them!

New duplicate forms went out to classes this week. I hope you found them helpful! Forms are intended for new visitors or if you would like more information from a frequent guest. After a visitor has filled out the duplicate form once, you don’t need to make them do it again every week (Unless you think the possibility of less paperwork will help them join your class!). If a visitor returns after completing the form, listing their name on the Sunday School roster is all we need in the office. Thank you so much for your help in following up with our guests!


Your opinion matters!

Why are Sunday School classes important? As we begin to reach out to our community, your thoughts are helpful. Let me know what you think by clicking on the smiling face.
