If you didn’t grow up in a church, you may not be familiar with Vacation Bible School, commonly referred to as “VBS” in churches, but it is not only a wonderful event for children, but a great opportunity for you to demonstrate what the ComColor can do for churches and how cost effective it can be.
Churches have to print up a lot of material to put these on. Now…..here is what is important for you to know about this and for future interactions with churches. They don’t buy finished, printed materials from Christian publishing companies anymore. Many of the materials that they use, they get either as downloads or on DVD and they are expected to print them in their churches. Needless to say, this can get costly and time-consuming.
You can offer to help them out and print some of the things they need. It will save them time and money and is a great way to demonstrate what the ComColor can do.
In addition, CLICK HERE to go to an article on the Effective Church Communications website that encourages churches to print out a flyer after VBS, that will invite families to come back to church, if the participation in VBS was their first contact with the church.
These flyers make great samples for you to print and take to churches to get the conversation started on how they need the ComColor for their children’s ministry. Below are samples of the flyers:
***THIS IS WHAT IS IMPORTANT****
This isn’t a demonstration that is for VBS only! This is the way the children’s curriculum companies distribute ALL their material these days–in that the church does not buy all the finished materials, but is expected to print many of them. Children’s ministries don’t require fancy, high-end glossy printing and this makes them perfect canidates for the ComColor machine.
Positioning the ComColor as an essential tool in the children’s ministry, and in the other ministries of the church that need communications and printing done, but often don’t get it because it is seen as too costly, is a great way to get into the church, particularly if the church has a high-end printing method for the church bulletin.
