Invite your community to "Rethink Church". Free, downloadable resources are available through shop.umc.org/rethink-church. These resources include postcards and doorhangers, yard sign and billboard graphics, worship graphics and bulletin covers around national church advertising themes and seasons of the Christian year.

Multimedia bundles include sermon starters, youth and children's resources, worship resources and community outreach materials.

Digital advertising resources help your church meet people where they are online, through social media and web graphics, videos, audio and cinema ads.
