Letter of Invitation to Church Anniversary Celebration

Dear Friends,

What a joy it is to announce the celebration service of the anniversary of our church’s founding!  Consider this your invitation to our Church Anniversary!

It's amazing to think about, but it was (NUMBER OF YEARS) ago that a small group of people gathered together with the desire to plant a church to have an impact on their community. Little did they realize what would take place, but I'm sure they dreamed a bit about the possibilities, aren't you?

There was a time in the Old Testament when the temple was being rebuilt and the statement was given that went like this; Zechariah 4:10a (MSG) 10a Does anyone dare despise this day of small beginnings? They'll change their tune when they see Zerubbabel setting the last stone in place!”

With any great work, there will always be some level of opposition, especially when it comes to the work of God! We may never know the struggles it took to get this fledgling work off the ground, but one thing we do know; it DID indeed get off the ground and continues to have an impact to this day on our community, and yes, even the world through our generous giving to Missions work.


Church Anniversary Service Invitation

Dear Friends,

On Sunday, (DATE), we as a church will be holding a special church anniversary service.

We will be commemorating 100 years of ministry at First Christian Church.

We are planning to hold one service that morning instead of our usual two, and our time will be followed by a catered luncheon downstairs in the Fellowship Hall and then Christmas caroling in the neighborhood. First Christian Church has ministered to our community for more than 100 years.

During that time, we have been led by nine pastors (four of whom will be joining our celebration). We have occupied three different buildings and been blessed by thousands of people who have chosen to make us their church home for a time.

Church Homecoming Invitation

Dear Friends and Family of FCC,

Sunday, September 15th is our annual church Homecoming Service and on behalf of the entire pastoral staff, I wanted to send this Church Homecoming Invitation to you!

We celebrate Homecoming each year, taking the time to look back over the blessings of the past year and forward into the future with anticipation for what the Lord is going to do in the year to come.  It is also a time for those who have been a part of our church body in the past to “come home” and join us to celebrate their time as a part of our congregation.

Feel free to share this Church Homecoming Invitation with others too!
