Promote Your Small-Group Bible Study

If you are hosting the small-group series at your church, then follow the guidelines in place for scheduling and promoting a small-group Bible study. Below is a list of possible ways you can promote the series through your church and encourage others to join a marriage study for small groups:

  • Distribute flyers in Sunday school classes or small groups.
  • Put up posters in well-traveled areas, such as hallways, classrooms, restrooms.
  • Show a promotional video in a worship service and in couple's Sunday school classes.
  • Request an announcement on the church's website, in newsletters, and in the worship service.
  • Send an email to members.
  • Place a banner ad on your church’s website.
  • Use your church's social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, etc.).
  • Ask your pastor to "endorse" the series and encourage couples to attend a small-group bible study. A personal word from your pastor will be a powerful incentive.
  • Invite couples in a one-on-one conversation. The best invitation is a personal contact.
  • Set up an information table in the church lobby before and after services. Show a promotional video, distribute information, and register couples.

If you are hosting the series in your own home, you can:

  • Personally invite couples in your neighborhood, in your circle of friends, and through your job.
  • Send an invitation through Facebook to your Facebook friends and ask them to forward it to their friends as well.
  • Send an email or text to your local contact list.

When you have a count of couples attending your small-group Bible study, order enough couple's sets for each spouse to have his or her own manual.
