Five Ways to Maximize Your Outreach Impact With Facebook Advertising
By Rev. Matt Peeples, The Point-Knoxville, TN

Since starting The Point Church in 2010 we have tried every kind of marketing you can imagine. Gorilla, traditional and everything in-between. One time we even tried beer coasters in a bar, but that is a story for another time. In the end we have seen some things takeoff, yielding incredible impact, and others fall flat on their face. What we have learned is marketing is a great way to make an impact, but it is also a great way to waste a lot of money fast! That is why I love Facebook advertising!
You know it's important to teach children to give thanks for God's many blessings and use those blessings wisely to serve Him. Learning to understand the value of sharing, saving and spending money is a good place to start.

LCEF Partner for 2016 NYG 

LCEF has been an important partner to those attending LCMS National Youth Gatherings. We will once again provide financial services for youth groups, workers, and volunteers.


A major concern for anyone who travels is handling money, and congregation leaders, parents and young people attending this major event are no different. We want the experience to be fun, memorable and safe!


LCEF's Visa prepaid cards are a great alternative to giving cash to youth group members. Lost cards can be easily replaced, and funds not used can be returned to the youth group's StewardAccount for future events.


The LCEF Exchange, also will be operating during the Gathering, July 16-20, 2016, in New Orleans. this service allows for on-site cash transactions for workers, volunteers, DCEs, parents and attendees.


NEW this year! Youth leaders can text LCEFNYG to 3131-31 for LCEF tips and tolls as they prepare for and enjoy the Gathering.

> > If you have a youth group that is planning on going to the NYG, please have the group leader contact Robin - - at the District office. We want to make sure they are receiving all the information from the District office regarding the District event, t-shirts, etc. < <
