Spreading the Word

We are so excited for you to share this program within your community and build your group membership. We hope these promotional tools will help you spread the word. It is so important to reach outside your church walls with this wonderful program. BBM is a great way to draw women and their families into your church.

The documents included below can be previewed online, or you may download and print them as you wish. Many documents are provided in an editable format, when appropriate, to allow you to customize them to fit your group.

BBM Informational Coffee

A BBM informational coffee is one of the most effective ways to quickly generate interest in your program. This could take place in one of your homes or at your church. Select a date and time and spread the word.

Informational Coffee Resources

Here are several items to assist you:

  • Sample Bulletin Announcement: Include an announcement like this in your church bulletin, newsletters, pastor emails, etc.
  • Coffee Bulletin Sample
  • Sample Email: Email any mothers within your church, and also reach those outside your current congregation by sending an email to your friends, neighbors, sports team moms, etc. Ask them to bring a friend!
  • Coffee Email Sample
  • BBM Large Postcards: A stack of promotional postcards is included in your BBM Launch Box. Use a portion of these large postcards to personally invite people – at the post office, doctor’s office, and carpool line. Be creative! On the back of the postcard there is a label area (sized for Avery 5160/8160 labels). Print labels with your coffee date, time, and location and adhere them to a select number of these postcards prior to handing them out. Perhaps allocate 30 of the postcards to your coffee promotion.
  • Coffee Script: Use this step by step coffee script as needed to provide the women a clear understanding of the BBM program and to create a big “buzz” about the Mother’s Day weekend registration launch. As you review the script, note the references to the following handouts, some of which you may want to print out in advance for your guests.
  • Coffee Script* | Get to Know You | Sample Agenda | Speaker Topics | Leadership Job Descriptions
  • Interest Cards: Hand out an Interest Card to each guest near the end of the coffee. You can send a reminder as your registration kick off draws near as well as follow up with those interested in any remaining leadership opportunities.
  • Interest Cards*
